If your not planning on doing any specific high impact activities, I would have them done when you neuter him.
Reason being, you will get status of hips now, and you will have an xray for future reference if anything crops up down the line. I also suggest, since your xraying, do the elbows/spine/knees.
I always xray the whole picture, so later on, if the dog comes down with something going on physically, I have something to refer back to , to compare with any changes occuring.
Now if you want to OFA the dog, that has to be done after he's 2, altho at this age you can get a preliminary finding.
