- Major will have to undergo remedial training after two biting incidents that occurred in the White House
- A spokesperson noted the lessons will last a few weeks because Major has always given problems
- The dog tends to display aggressive behaviour like jumping on people, barking and charging at staff members
Major, US president Joe Biden's rescue dog, is set to leave the comfort of the White House for some extra training.
According to Deutsche Welle, the three-year-old dog will have to undergo remedial training after two biting incidents in the president's residence.
Michael LaRosa, a spokesperson of Jill Biden, noted the lessons were to last a few weeks because Major has been causing problems ever since Biden and his family relocated from Delaware.
During this period, Biden's other dog, 12-year-old Champ, will remain at the White House. Major is a rescue dog who the family adopted from an animal shelter in 2018.
He is reported to have caused injury to a Secret Service official back in March and was sent to Biden's home in Delaware for training and returned to Washington.
However, the acts still dictate and the latest training is believed will help him get used to his new life in the busy house.
Sources close to the family indicate that Major tends to display aggressive behaviour like jumping on people, barking and charging at staff members. It has been a tradition for the ruling president to take their pets to the White House.
Previously, Briefly News reported that Biden's dog was kicked out of the White House for a biting incident. Three-year-old Major is a rescue who was adopted by the family from an animal shelter in 2018.
Sources close to the family indicate that Major has a tendency to display aggressive behaviour like jumping on people, barking and charging at staff members. As a matter of fact, Jill has once admitted to catching Major on the couch, one of the places the dogs are not allowed.
"They run all over," she said.
Champ, the older of the two dogs, is nearly 13 years old, therefore tame and quiet due to his age. As at the time of writing this report, details on the condition of the victim remain brief.
