Training of basic commands should be done away from the other dog.

I would make sure each dog gets alone time with you. You want the puppy to bond with you, and not the other dog. Puppy classes, hikes separate, time apart, will be good for both.

Family walks with both dogs are good as well. But make sure the new puppy and the existing dog, each get private time!
