The Poochon does very well in a number of environments, but you need to cater for a daily exercise of at least half an hour, or a bit more if it does not have access to a backyard. Poochons inherit a higher than average intelligence as both parents, particularly the Poodle, are considered in the top section of intelligent dog breeds. It should be easy to house-train your Poochon fairly quickly and it will be quick to learn your nuances.

If Poochons are given the proper training and exercise, they will do well in an apartment, however, they'll need extra space for playing. Poochons also tend to run back and forth in a hallway to exercise.
