The Olate Dogs

Olate DogsIt’s Dogfest at the Falany! Not only will you enjoy a show, but you’ll have the chance to adopt a homeless pup and learn about local businesses that cater to your furry friends.

More than your average Dog Show, The Olate Dogs will amaze and delight. The Olate Dogs were the winning participants from Season 7 of America’s Got Talent, scooping up the $1,000,000 and headlining The Palazzo. Led by Richard Olate and his son Nicholas Olate, the Olate Dogs are a high-energy, fast-paced theatrical act filled with doggie friendly and amazing pet tricks.

Richard Olate is from Chile South America.  He is the second youngest in a family of 22 children.  His family was very poor.  There were many times when they would not have enough to eat for days at a time. His story is not a sad one though.  At age 12 he got a dog from the street and discovered a talent for dog training.  There are many dogs roaming the streets in Chile, so guess what……?  When he had put together a routine, he, with his mother’s help, booked his amateur act at schools and small circuses.  He quickly got a regular performance schedule but needed more help, and his older brother soon joined him. They spent the next few years traveling with different circuses throughout South America and in 1989 they premiered in the United States of America.  Richard has appeared with his dogs in many television shows, made commercials, been in a movie. A true testament that no matter where you come from, hard work and determination makes dreams come true.
