I know a lot of people who work their dogs (for high levels of the sport) test around 6-9 months when the growth plates close or fairly close too closing anyways.
To me, I don't do a lot of jumping or strenuous work (outside the norm) that I personally think would hurt them (would they do this anyway? is a question I ask myself) so I wait.
