I NEVER reccomend anyone getting a second dog on the sole purpose for a playmate to the first pet. If you want a second dog, then that is something to consider, but don't do it JUST for your first dog.

There are many other options first, like a dog walker or daycare, rather than jumping straight to a new addition. It's best to get a second dog when your first dog is 2 - 3, fully mature, trained, and ready to be a good role model for the next one.
