Look it's entirely up to you. This is the kind of decision that depends on you the owner. If you can't handle it...go ahead and neuter. If you can, wait.
Personally I don't like to neuter until maturity- around 2yrs. Although I actually have yet to neuter any of my dogs- so they are all intact. I've never had a problem, although they do grow up. In regards to the dominance issues...it seems to depend on the personality of your pup. Is he dominant by nature? There are plenty of dominant dogs that are neutered as well as intact dogs that are not. Much of that depends on the in born personality of your dog and your management of leadership of your dog. I have not found being intact to have overly much to do with dominance in the pack- with the exception being when my female is in heat.
Neutering will not stunt the growth. In fact neutered males tend to be taller and a little lankier than their counterparts. What an early neutered male will not develop is the Secondary Sex characteristics in the neck and shoulders.
