Biden’s Dog Commander Bites ANOTHER Secret Service Agent: President’s 2-Year-Old German Shepherd Implicated in 11th White House Biting Incident
- Commander bit Secret Service agent Monday night
- “The officer was treated by resort medical personnel,” the Secret Service said.
- This is the 11th time the German shepherd has bitten an officer
President Joe Biden’s commanding dog bit another Secret Service agent, marking the 11th biting incident at the White House.
The 2-year-old German Shepherd bit an officer Monday evening.
“Yesterday around 8 p.m., a Secret Service Uniformed Division police officer came into contact with a First Family pet and was bitten. The officer was treated by complex medical personnel,” USSS communications chief Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement to DailyMail.com.
The injured officer is doing well, the Secret Service said. The incident was first reported by CNN.
Secret Service emails obtained by Judicial Watch in July revealed the dog bit or threatened at least 10 people, making this the 11th biting incident involving the premier pet.

One officer was sent to a local hospital after the dog bit him on the arm and leg, and another was attacked when Jill Biden left him off-leash.
The agent also had to use a steel shield to defend against another attack.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre blamed the dog’s behavior on stress.
“As you all know, the White House complex can be unique and very stressful. That’s something I’m sure you can all understand,” Jean-Pierre said. “It’s unique and it’s stressful for all of us. So you can imagine what this means for one or more pets, more broadly.
She added that the first family was “looking for ways to make the situation better for everyone.”
At the time the emails were released in July, the White House said the Bidens were working on new training and leash protocols for Commander, but did not detail what those were.
Jill Biden’s office did not respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment on the latest incident.
In the batch of emails released in July, Secret Service agents called the dog “really crazy,” claimed it would have been “put down” if it didn’t belong to the Bidens and said he needed a muzzle.
On November 10, 2022, Jill Biden “could not regain control” of the commander as the dog charged another Secret Service member.
That same month, the German shepherd squeezed an officer’s arm, forcing him to seek medical attention.

The Bidens welcomed Commander to the executive residence as a puppy in December 2021.

Commander isn’t the first Biden pet to cause problems for the first couple.
Another of the Bidens’ German shepherds, Major, has also bitten Secret Service personnel and agents.
The dog left 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in 2021 and moved in with “family friends.”
