At around a year old they're in adolescence. I'd compare a GSD that age to a 15-year old kid. He or she has hit puberty but still has the mind of an adolescent and a lot of growing and maturing to do.

Here is one of many links I found. This is one that lists months, up to one year. I have no idea how accurate any of them are.

The problem with those calculators is that they don't take into account breed. Smaller breeds mature faster and live longer than large breeds. So a 1 year old Pomeranian is more mature than a 1 year old GSD, and a 12 year old Pomeranian is "younger" than a 12 year old GSD.
