When do standard poodles mentally mature? My dog val is 4 1/2 and he is a big puppy. He still has puppy traits. Am I just lucky to have a puppy for life or is common in poodles?

My standard poodle is 11 years old, today he ran full steam ahead through the house with one of his toys. I was told he would mellow out at 2 years. At 4 years I had him neutered, he still kept that puppy personality. Within the past year he has had trouble standing for long periods of time, his groomer keeps him all day and just gives him rest breaks. Otherwise he is fine and the love of my life.
