Competing Interests

The authors have read the journal's policy and have the following conflicts: Mark Spivak is the president of Comprehensive Pet Therapy (CPT). He supervised all training procedures without compensation and contributed concepts to the design and performance of the experiment. This does not alter the authors' adherence to all the PLoS ONE policies on sharing data and materials.
