I know that we have explored the subject of Major, President Biden’s dog who has twice bitten people at the White House, but when the experts weighed in I thought it would be valuable to validate some of your thoughts on the matter.

Biden WH ‘tension’ to blame for Major getting agitated, dog expert says

Cesar Millan said the problem doesn’t lie with Major, but the situation and people the dog is surrounded by’

There’s a hairy situation brewing at the White House.

High-profile dog experts are speaking out about what they believe is really causing President Biden’s dog Major to act out after he reportedly bit two people at the White House in recent weeks, according to a report.

Cesar Millan, known for the Emmy-nominated television series “Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan,” described the White House environment as “a place full of tension.” He said the problem doesn’t lie with Major, but the situation and people the dog is surrounded by.

“It’s not the dog,” he told Politico. “What Major is saying is that he doesn’t feel safe yet. And if he doesn’t feel safe, he can’t trust. And if he can’t trust, he can’t feel calm.”

Professional dog trainer Larry Krohn said a dog’s behavior, whether it’s good or bad, is created in the environment that the canine lives in. “Where it spends its time. The people it spends its time with,” he said.

Krohn added that behavior comes out of fear and insecurities, which he said is typical in the German shepherd breed — like Major, “especially when it’s not a well-bred dog.”

“And you can’t punish that out of a dog … you can’t treat that out of a dog,” he said, according to Politico. “You have to change the mindset of the dog to where they feel comfortable and confident in their own skin and they trust the people around them.”

Then…

“When the dog bites one time, it’s something people need to take a look at,” Silverman told Politico. “When you have the owner — I don’t care if you’re the president of the United States or you’re just an average dog trainer like myself — if you are answering a question and blowing off an issue about the biting, that’s a problem. That’s a red flag.”

“Ask not what the dog can do for you. Ask what you can do for the dog,” Millan added.

    Major needs a home where there are fewer people, where he can hit the trails with his birdbrained human with a camera, where there’s an open playing field (e.g., soccer) that isn’t used a lot so that he can chase stuff like balls and feather darts, and where there is peace and quiet. He also needs to have a doggy job, e.g., get the paper, help out with taking out trash, moving the lawn sprinkler around, filling the birdbath and escorting kids to the school bus pickup area.
    And he needs toys, too, lots of toys and someone to play with, like a cat or a warthog. Another dog would be too much competition.

    It ain’t the dog, it’s the stupid ass owner.

    Poor dog is nothing more than a prop staged to make senile Old Joe look like “everyday joe”. Do the dogs a favor and give them to somebody that will actually want, love them, and take of them. That old coot can’t care for a dog much less a country.

  3. Harry says:

    Dogs are good judges of character. The White House is is now full of horrible people, plus assorted freaks and degenerates. The dog is wants out.

  4. OWB says:

    Whole heartedly agree – Major needs a safe place. His current residence obviously ain’t it.

  5. Devtun says:

    Gerald Ford was probably the most avid dog lover among presidents in last 50 yrs. Bush 41 & Reagan were up there as well.

    “What Major is saying is that he doesn’t feel safe yet. And if he doesn’t feel safe, he can’t trust. And if he can’t trust, he can’t feel calm.” Funny thing, I don’t trust the bastards in the White House either.

      The first time Major bites Kamala Harris – that bitch is gone. Meaning, the dog.

      Oh, it’s male you say? I’m a Democrat – I don’t let facts get in the way of making a point.

    I did a little digging into who had pets and what kind and what their names were, when they were presidential pets.

    The last thing I expected to see was that FDR had a German Shepherd named Major, as well as the better-known Scottie Fala.

    I do not believe in coincidences, especially when I see something like this. And the current bozo in the Oval Office is definitively NOT Franklin Roosevelt.

    (I will not cast aspersions on FDR’s character; just making a point here.)

  8. UpNorth says:

    Rule 39. No such thing as a coincidence. Major is a prop, nothing more.

  9. KoB says:

    I voluntold on a public forum (here) to bring that Good Doggy to the Land of Milk and Honey and give him a very good home. Poor thing’s butt is prolly raw from licking himself to take the taste out of his mouth.
