The Bidens’ younger German Shepherd, Major will receive “off-site” training after two biting incidents at the White House.
“Major, the Bidens’ younger dog, will undergo some additional training to help him adjust to life in the White House,” First Lady Dr. Jill Biden’s press secretary said. “The off-site, private training will take place in the Washington, D.C. area, and it is expected to last a few weeks.”
Last month, Major had a biting incident with a Secret Service agent that required the victim be seen by the White House medical unit. Less than three weeks later he bit another White House worker, this time a member of the National Park Service.
Major is the first shelter dog to live in the White House. He was adopted in November 2018, months before Biden announced he would run for president in the 2020 election cycle.
