Poodles are fine with city life as they remain particularly relaxed when indoor. If at home, poodles will generally lay right next to you with limited activity through the day. Regular walks either in the city or the countryside is all a poodle needs. Although excess space is not imperative, poodles crave mental stimulations and that will definitely need to remain a part of daily life.
