Deploy therapy and watch dogs internationally

There needs to be new ways to keep better security of our foreign interests around the world. We need new ways to comfort hurting hearts, affected by war. There ought to be a new push for the training and use of both therapy and watch dogs in the international settings. There ought to be new considerations of using more than one layer of walls and check points, as well.

There are thousands of displaced families caused by the conflict in Syria. They are ending up at refugee camps outside of Syria. Many of them are kids. It is known therapy dogs can bring comfort for those hurting hearts. If they were to deploy these therapy dogs to refugee camps, these pets would help the children cope better with the affects of war.

Watch dogs should be part of the foreign security formula to keep things safe. They ought to have, let us say at least a second or even a third tiered wall with a checkpoint to the already one wall, as well. Organizers, such as the U.N. would deploy both therapy and watchdogs to these additional walls' check points. These additional walls (one or more tiered check points) would be placed around our embassies, between war wary areas and that of refugee camps, and outside of big cities like that of Cairo (though it would be the government of Egypt to implement), to prevent unwanted things and people from entering these places. To prevent corruption and distrust, each nation would control each tiered gate. They ought to incorporate these therapy and watchdogs to the additional (layered) checkpoints. They ought to deploy these dogs to refugee camps, as well.

  1. Sure, let's send all our EXCESS therapy and watch dogs overseas!

    Of course, there is the small problem that we don't have any excess therapy or watch dogs; in fact we are far short of being able to meet our own needs.

      As they say in business, out of 200 ideas, 2 may be doable. So perhaps you are right that the idea above is one of those 198 non-workable concepts. However, we Americans are a creative bunch and we never give up! We invented the vaccine, went to the moon, created the Internet and I am sure there were many tries before we perfected them. Look at the first in flight contest there in Kitty Hawk. There were many inventions before the Wright Brothers won that contest. Though at the same time, there is this thing called "groupthink" that I learned in a Social Studies class. It states a group of people will vote all to one or none to all every time. It could be a school board or city counsel meeting where this group will vote the same as its leader. If we are to find answers to many of our nation's problems, we must encourage people to submit ideas, no matter how unworkable they may seem. We should not let this "groupthink" phenomenon from taking control. Many times people will build upon concepts on other ideas to really solve problems. As one scientist once said, I stand on the shoulders of giants (other scientists.) I believe all organizations should encourage many new concepts. Then in time that one idea out of 198, just may transform an organization, our nation, and perhaps the whole world. Then more organizations' goals may be better met, in my opinion.

  2. As much as I would support this option I would also like to add it would be a great addition to do the same thing for people in the United State, for those of us that would truly benefit from the use of a service animal find no way to obtain access to one.

  3. Certainly this idea of therapy dogs is good. We do need more in the US, too. Adequate training and standards for training would need to be agreed through the UN or better an international training organization. These dogs must be temperament tested to assure they can handle the situations of very stressed and possibly wounded (physical and emotional)people. They must be able to handle the sights, sounds and smells of war.
