US President Joe Biden's younger dog, Major, is back at the White House after extra training - including spending time with some cats - to address biting incidents, first lady Jill Biden says.

Major, a German Shepherd rescue, received training outside the White House this month after two biting incidents.

"He's back," Jill Biden said in an interview with NBC conducted on Thursday.

"He is such a sweet, lovable dog, he really is."

The Bidens are expecting to bring a cat - a female - into their fold soon, she said, and Major has been prepared for that.

"That was part of his training, they took him into a shelter with cats," she said.

"He did fine."
