'Dog Whisperer' Cesar Millan claims Major Biden not to blame for biting incidents

Just over a week after President Biden’s dog Major was involved in his second nipping incident, “Dog Whisperer” Cesar Millan did an interview with Fox News Primetime in which he came to the defense of the presidential pup. Host Mark Steyn questioned if the White House environment, the large number of people working there or the fact that Major is a rescue have anything to do with Major’s behavior, but Millan shut down all of those.

“We can't blame the dog. That's the first thing we have to understand is, we can't blame the dog,” Millan said. “We have to take full responsibility of how to introduce a dog into an environment first, and then introduce the dog to new people so he gains the trust, the respect and the love. Then you have harmony.”

As for the question about there being too many people at the White House, Millan explained that being around a lot of people is actually a good thing.

“That makes him more social. He has more friends,” Millan said. “This is a big opportunity here. If everybody understands the same thing and practices the same behavior, everybody’s going to be Major’s best friend.”

As for the question of Major being a rescue as the problem, Millan was adamant that just because a dog is a rescue doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with it.

“We all have issues. We all come with issues,” Millan said. “After 20 years of age, people have issues. So, a rescue dog is a dog that had issues and they were placed into a shelter. It doesn't mean he can't go back to normal.”

- The dog whisperer Cesar Millan called into Fox News primetime Tuesday, where he came to the defense of President Biden's dog, Major, following the presidential pups second nipping incident, which occurred last week. Host Mark Steyn questioned if there are just too many people at the White House, but Millan explained that a lot of people is actually a good thing.

- Doesn't that complicate the situation?

CEASAR MILLAN: Absolutely not. That makes him more social. He has more friends. There's big opportunity here. If everybody understands the same thing and practiced the same behavior, everybody's going to be Major's best friend.

- While there are those who have had good experiences with Major at the White House, Steyn questioned, if Major has issues, because he's a rescue. But Millan put an end to that line of thought.

CEASAR MILLAN: We all have issues. We all come with issues. You know, after 20 years of age, people have issues. So a rescue dog means a dog that had issues, and it was placed into a shelter. It doesn't mean he can't go back to normal.
