Excellent suggestions. We have always introduced our dogs on neutral territory, and they have always gotten along great. The only problem we've had with this is about 6 months after adopting one of our dogs, she started showing outward signs of dominance over the other 3 dogs. She was getting 2 of them by the throat and causing puncture wounds on one of them. Being that she was so much bigger than the other 3, they didn't even stand a chance against her. After working with our trainer and veterinarian on this matter, we had to find her a new home where she was the only dog. She was as sweet as sugar with people, but she definitely could not be around other dogs.

These are some good suggestions, but I think it varies with each dog.

I once got a dachshund (Zaida) to be a companion to my toy poodle (Sunshine). They got along most of the time. Unfortunately, the dachshund occationally attacked Sunny for no known reason, and had a grip that was unbelievably strong. (I later learned that dachshunds were bred to fight badgers in Germany. whew! No wonder!) She was a real lover towards me at all times so I did dearly loved her, but for Sunny's sake, I had to find another home for Zaida. I hope/think we're all a lot better off now.

How important is it that both dogs be of the same breed or general age?

I've always had 2 dogs and at times 3. 2 dogs are perfect as I find they comfort each other and are twice the fun. I never knew my one dog was so funny until I got the second. It's better than TV. And unfortunately, when one passes away, I had the other to comfort me. I just have one now but am looking for a second as it's just not the same without 2. One caveat, if you think that your one dog's perfect behaviour will rub off on the second, think again. A second dog with bad habits just teaches the first all the bad habits. Well worth it though.

Since I'm more of a cat person, one dog would be plenty!
