Whether you do Schutzhund or not, in general it is better to wait until they are physically mature, so about 2 years.

A lot of pups do that - just discourage and redirect to other more acceptable activities. Not an indication of dominance or sexual maturity at this age.

Neutered dogs can do Schutzhund if they have the natural drive, nerve and aggression for the sport. I would wait until at least two but that is a personal decision you have to decide for your self and your dog.
