|Poodles are extremely smart and active dogs, and very people oriented. They are not a breed that's happy to just lie around alone all day.
My husband and I both work, but luckily, my husband is able to work from home once or twice a week, so the dog is not alone all day for five days in a row.
The most important thing is exercise. We give our mini a 20 minute walk every morning, followed by a 20 to 40 minute walk at night. On weekends we visit the dog park and go for hour-long walks/hikes. He also goes to doggie daycare one day a week, which is mental stimulation and some exercise as he runs around.
I think if you are dedicated to providing a lot of exercise and attention when you are not at work, it could be OK.
