A new altercation put Joe Biden's dogs back in the focus of the media that follows the day-to-day life of the White House.

It is that the pets of the president of the United States will have a new training so that their time in the president's residence

does not bring more problems, especially for advisers, security agents and employees.

Although President

Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden

have two dogs, it is

Major

, a 3-year-old German Shepherd, who will receive professional help adjusting to the White House.

This was decided after he starred in a second incident in March.

As reported by a White House official on Monday, the

training for the German shepherd will take place in an external place

and not in the White House.

It will be the second "treatment" to control the dog, although this time it will not be transferred to another city and will take place in the Washington metropolitan area.

Michael LaRosa

, a spokesman for the first lady, noted in an emailed statement that

the training

is expected to

last a few weeks.

The Bidens also have another German Shepherd

, 12-year-old Champ,

who also resides in the White House.

But it

is the youngest dog that has been the source of mishaps

since the presidential couple settled in the most famous residence in the United States, in January.

"It is not unusual (the reaction of the dog)," said a specialist.

However, two months after the move, the White House confirmed that

Major had bitten someone while on a walk.

Shortly before that incident, the dog had caused what the presidential residence said was a "minor injury" to a Secret Service employee.

This incident occurred on March 8.

After the first incident,

both dogs went to the Biden home in Delaware for a time

.

The White House tried to hide the problem the dogs were causing, noting that this move was because the first lady would be traveling for a few days, but the president later confirmed that Major was being trained.

"

I imagine the White House is quite a stressful place to live as both a human and a dog,"

veterinarian Amy Pike told the AP agency.

"It is not unusual (the reaction of the dog),

especially since it is a dog that was rescued from the street

and we do not know its history of socialization when it was a puppy," the specialist clarified.

"So it

may not have been exposed to many people, places, sights and sounds

. And I imagine the White House is quite a stressful place. To live as a human and as a dog," he completed

During National Pet Day on Sunday, Jill Biden tweeted pictures of dogs and accompanied them with the phrase:

"I love these two."

"It may not have been exposed to many people, places, sights and sounds."
