How the Bidens Failed Their Dog Major
Good Dogs! (03-17-2021) #6079: Tracie and her cohost, Carol Borden (founder of Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs and a veteran dog trainer, particularly of German Shepherds) discuss the various ways the President and his wife, Jill, seemed not to have considered the stress on their dogs of moving into the Whtie House. There were warning signs of tension and reactivity from their younger German Shepherd, Major, but nobody paid attention until they sent him away after he bit a Secret Service agent last week. What could they have done differently? How should they walk it back now to stabilize Major’s temperament? How can we all learn to respect communication from our own dogs before they become labeled as “bad” or a “problem,” when we are the ones who should take responsibility for their wellbeing, emotional as well physical?
