Just make sure your current dog gets some exercise to prevent bordem. That could be with another dog or taking her fishing with you. Make sure you want another dog before getting one. If she spends ENOUGH time with you besides an occasional petting while feeding or walking past the pen she may not need a companion dog. Mine plays fetch every evening or goes with me horse back. Some don't have that much time. But as a person who likes 50-84 hr work wks I don't have any more time than the next guy.

It comes with time. Lots and lots and then some more time. Don't sweat it. Like horses you just need partial percentage of improvement at a time

After you get there it is fun. And the dog will usually travel twice the distance as the horse. Atleast the 1st half

Getting a second dog entirely depends on your situation and readiness. If you are moving, it may be a better idea to wait until she settles in to your new place and gets used to a routine before bringing in a second dog. You can do lots of other activities in the mean time to help keep her from getting bored like walks or hikes. You can even set up play dates with friend dogs (my dog has more friend dates than I do!)

I am in a similar situation but I plan to wait until I am settled and used to my new residence before bringing home a second dog.
