We waited a full year before we added our second Havanese. It was much easier to deal with puppy when the first one is older.
I agree with DAve, it is so much easier if your first one is fully trained before bringing another one in. Keep in mind, if you get a rescue, that they sometimes come with training issues, so you want the first pup to be fully trained.

You mean a year after the first came to your home, or once they turned a year old?
Bama and training....well, she had always done really well for the most part, but the past month she has been acting up a bit more....I'm not sure if this is adolescent rebellion, a result of the second fear imprint period, or the fact that we just moved (and next door lives a three legged German shepherd and some kind of spaniel..never met them, just seen them through the window and gate) n
Barking has been a new thing with her. I understand dogs are just trying to talk, but she went from not caring if someone came to the door to barking at the wind. The past week though things seem to have improved with that. She doesn't always bark when we hear something outside...even if it is another dog. She does bark whenever we walk by the house next door...I'm not sure if she is saying 'hello neighbor dogs, how are you' or 'I live here now' or 'woof woof I'm scared'. I've tried to watch her body language but she is excited so it's hard to tell. I can't exactly tell what the other dogs are doing since its it's a ironwork sort of gate with only tiny holes.
She has had a few potty accidents, but once again, we did just move and so she has to learn where the piddle pad is and there are still boxes to unpack. She also needs a refresher on sit/stay when she is outside...she just runs and runs and she will sit but when you get close she runs as if it is a game. We are practicing inside....reinforcing the basics.
She is on the list for the level 2 class whenever the trainer has it on the schedule. I may drop in on a level 1 for a refresher. I'm also visiting another training place (ZoomRoom) that offers agility classes.
Hahaha typing this out I can definitely tell she isn't ready yet. ;-)
I think it also might be a good idea to have playdates at our house...it's one thing to go on vacation at another dog's house, or go over for movie night, but it's quite another thing if you are the host and some other dog is playing with your toys and sitting on your sofa. ;-)
And after a few playdates, maybe some sleepovers.
