"But why, out of all of the animals that humans have domesticated, have dogs become so close to their owners? "
Can't view videos at work, but the answer is pretty darned simple: Both are hierarchical pack animals. A dog is perfectly happy with a human as pack leader. The most a cat, horse, or cow will do is to accept a human as another member of the same species, albeit a strange looking one.
