Abstract: The aim of our research is to build good relationships between pets and robots at home. We aim to promote of positive interaction between pets and robots. Recently, robots have been become popular with the general populace. There is a lot of research in human-robot interaction. We pay attention to pets that live in houses with humans. It is required for pets to like robots for positive interactions between pets and robots to exist. In this paper, we examine that 1) a robot can take care of dog, and 2) dogs and robots can be companion by caring behavior of robots toward dogs. In our experiment, we used two robots. One of the robots takes care of a dog, while the other does not. We observed which robot the dog chooses to interact with and had seventeen dogs participate in this study. We performed this statistical test to judge whether the dogs treated the robots with any significant differences.
