The exact cause of the biting incidents and the extent of the injuries remain undisclosed. It is uncertain if any further measures will be taken to address Commander’s behavior.
A Troubling Trend
This biting incident adds to a growing list of similar incidents involving Commander. In July, it was revealed that the dog had gone on a four-month biting spree, attacking multiple Secret Service agents with varying degrees of injuries. While initial reports indicated seven victims, some sources suggested that the actual number may have been as high as ten.
The White House Press Secretary stated that Commander’s aggressive behavior is likely attributed to the stress caused by the constant commotion and movement within the residence area of the White House. In response to the previous incidents, the White House had promised to provide the dog with additional training and establish designated areas and times for him to roam freely.
There is currently no indication that Commander will face any consequences, such as being removed from the White House, like his older brother Major, who also faced biting issues. As the incidents persist, it remains to be seen if any further action will be taken to address the dog’s behavior.
