Biden's pup Major sent for two weeks 'additional training' after biting staff

Joe Biden's dog set for extra training after acting up

US President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden's dog Major will get professional help adjusting to the White House after a pair of biting incidents last month.

Michael LaRosa, press secretary for first lady Dr. Jill Biden, told CNN and USA Today that Major will see an off-site, private trainer in the Washington, D.C. area for a few weeks.

Major was sent to DE for additional training after the first biting incident to help him adjust to his new home.

"Nipping is probably more accurate than biting", LaRosa said on Monday.

At the time, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the removal of the dogs from the White House was "planned", due to Jill Biden's travel schedule.

Last month he bit a Park Service employee - the National Park Service maintains the White House lawns - and, in February, he bit a security guard. That incident was confirmed by LaRosa.

Afghanistan: Biden to call for end to 'America's longest war'
Last month, the Taliban threatened to resume hostilities against foreign troops still in the country on 1 May. An unnamed Afghan government official said the United States withdrawal plan was "irresponsible".

In both incidents, the person was checked by the White House Medical Unit and there was no serious damage.

One unlucky German shepherd is about to swap the White House for the dog house.

But the 45th president of the United States broke that tradition after more than 120 years.

The pup, who the Bidens adopted in November 2018 from an animal shelter, has been on a leash when spotted at the White House in the past few weeks.

Psaki has said the dogs "will come and go and it will not be uncommon for them to head back to DE on occasion as the President and first lady often do as well".

"Eighty-five percent of the people there love him".
