President Joe Biden’s dog, Commander, was involved in another biting incident at the White House.
A spokesperson for the Secret Secret confirmed the incident in a statement Tuesday, according to CNN.
“Yesterday around 8pm, a Secret Service Uniformed Division police officer came in contact with a First Family pet and was bitten. The officer was treated by medical personnel on complex,” Anthony Guglielmi said.
The bite appears to be the 11th reported incident involving Commander since October.
In one incident last November, Commander, a 2-year-old German shepherd, clamped down on an agent’s arm and thigh which resulted in injuries so serious the officer was referred to a hospital for treatment.
“As we’ve noted before, the White House can be a stressful environment for family pets, and the First Family continues to work on ways to help Commander handle the often unpredictable nature of the White House grounds,” first lady Jill Biden spokesperson Elizabeth Alexander said in a statement Tuesday.
“The President and First Lady are incredibly grateful to the Secret Service and Executive Residence staff for all they do to keep them, their family, and the country safe,” she added.
The White House has said that the Bidens are working on additional leashing protocols and training for Commander following the incidents.
