There's much said about an Olympic athlete's support team, but it's usually trainers, coaches and parents who get the credit. But behind many good athletes are great dogs, who inspire and motivate their humans to perform superhuman feats on the field, the mat or in the pool.
WebVet singled out five dog owners who are aiming for gold in London -- including two sets rivals who have a common passion beyond their sport.
Among WebVet's favorite Olympic Athlete Dog Owners are:
Michael Phelps: Dog dad to bulldog Herman and Catahoula mix Stella, whom he met on the Today show.
Abby Wambach: The proud mom of a skateboarding pup named Kingston.
Ryan Lochte: He named his Doberman "Carter" after Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. -- better known as Lil’ Wayne.
