The good thing about two puppies is they entertain each other. The bad thing is that training is harder. Potty training, especially, can be harder, because where one goes, the other may follow suit. Also, teaching them to control barking is LOTS harder... the people with multiple dogs tend to have the most barking problems, even when they are adults. For obedience training, you really have to work with each one separately, which is not difficult, but time consuming.
Some people do get two puppies close together, and most eventually work it out. But be aware that the first year or so is going to be much, MUCH harder. Even a single puppy is a ton of work for the first year. If you wait until your older puppy is REALLY confirmed in potty training and the "house rules", (so probably between 1-2 years old) that dog can be a good influence in brining up a new baby. I think that's what the majority of people who want to Havs end up doing.
