Olate Dogs are the winning participants from Season 7 of America’s Got Talent, scooping up the $1,000,000 prize and headlining The Palazzo in Las Vegas.
Led by Richard Olate and his son Nicholas Olate, the Olate Dogs are a high-energy, fast-paced canine theatrical act filled with amazing dog tricks, human acrobatics and humor.
Embodying the American Dream, Richard grew up in South America in a poor family. He got his start as a young boy of 10 when he rescued his first street dogs and found he had a gift. He combined this gift of training dogs and compassion with incredible hard work. This enabled him to support his entire family by age 12 with his dog troupe. He came to the attention of a circus group and found himself performing in the United States at age 33. That is when the rise of the Olate Dogs began in earnest.
