10 Amazing Pets and Their Olympic-worthy Tricks

Pets with olympic-worthy tricks via Babble.comThe countdown to the Summer Olympics is on! I am so looking forward to watching all the incredible athletes compete and show off all their amazing talent and training.

I can’t even imagine the amount of hard work, dedication and training that has to be done in order to make it to the Olympics, let alone win a medal, but I can appreciate all the hard work they do. I am in awe every year when I watch the athletes tackle their sports — with seeming ease.

Olympic athletes are not the only ones who become masters of very specific sports, tricks, or trades. Some of our furriest and featheriest friends have hidden talents you may not even realize were possible. Jaw-dropping, laugh-inducing, and mind-boggling are some of the adjectives I would use to describe these Olympic-worthy skills!

Click through to watch 10 Olympic-worthy tricks performed by dogs, rabbits, cats and even a hamster:
