Standard Poodles need regular exercise such as long walks and outdoor activities. They need to be socialized early so they won't be too wary of strangers. Because the coat generally doesn't shed a lot, this breed is a good option for people with allergy. There are also standard and miniature poodles which are bigger in size.
