There has been considerable debate on this around here...I switched at one year.

I was just about to post this question. Thor is coming up on his 1-year birthday and I was thinking of switching him over. He loves Nutro Natural Choice, so I was going to switch him to their Large Breed Adult Dog Food. Does anyone know where any good threads on the topic are located?

Cocoa is 8 months and I switched her to adult about a month ago. She was on puppy food and gained 8.5 lbs between 6 & 7 months, which I thought was a bit too fast of growth for her joints.
