Creature comfort is booming

Your best friends keep getting better. More dogs and other animals are going to work as animal-assisted and pet therapists. Even a therapeutic, interactive robot created by the Japanese is helping reduce stress for health-care patients – Paro, who looks like a fluffy white seal, responds to voice, touch, light and temperature. The good news is these animal helpers – real and robotic – are creating more jobs while transforming the well-being of people who need it most: those with at-home care or who are in assisted living or care facilities, hospitals, schools, correctional facilities and mental institutions.
