Default when should I switch to Adult food?

My puppy is now on Blue Buffalo Chicken and Rice recipe, i was wondering when i should switch to Adult. He will be 1 years old in a couple of days (April 6,2014) I would think 1 years old is still a puppy so he would need the special DHA that is in puppies food, what do you suggest?

Yes, switch soon...

From what I remember, with a GSD it would have been ideal to switch at 6 months. Do a search and see what comes up. Either case it's fine I'm sure, just seemed like most people on the forum (as well as my breeder and vet) and reco'ed larger breeds to switch earlier.
