Cesar Millan says he feels for the Bidens’ dogs Champ and Major after the German Shepherds were removed from the White House following a reported biting incident.
Its a new environment. Its new people. And this particular place is a lot of stress,” the celebrity dog trainer and former Nat Geo “Dog Whisperer” star told MarketWatch in an interview published Thursday.

Psaki said the dogs would return “soon” to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
The way [Champ and Major] see it, they just appeared from one place to another place one day,” Millan said. “And to us, the White House is a very symbolic house in the world, a very powerful house but in the dog world, its just a house where people are not in sync.”
Millan advised the Bidens, You have to let the dogs adapt in their way.
Millan had offered his guidance to the White House pups in an interview with ITK last month, saying it was important for the first family to set rules early on.
Never bring a dog indoors full of physical energy,” he said just days after the 46th president took office.
Millan told MarketWatch that his suggestion would be to have Major run on a treadmill indoors and establish boundaries.
He needs to know exactly what hes doing in the Oval Office: stay here to the right or to the left, sitting or standing,” Millan said. “You have to let him know. He cant choose.”
Major, believed to be the first shelter rescue dog to live in the White House after being adopted from the Delaware Humane Association, is 3-years-old and Champ is 13. The two furry family members are the first pets to live in the White House since the Obama administration.
