NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Olate family, winners of season seven of “America’s Got Talent,” bring their adorable, twirling and flipping poodle-mix rescue dogs to Nashville for an evening of unbelievable pet tricks at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s James K. Polk Theater on Feb. 3, 2017.
Tickets for The Olate Dogs go on sale on Wednesday, Dec. 21, at noon at TPAC.org, by phone at 615-782-4040, and at the TPAC Box Office, 505 Deaderick St., in downtown Nashville.
Led by father Richard Olate, his wife Rebecca, son Nicholas Olate, wife Yasmin and new baby Isabella, The Olate Dogs are a high-energy, fast-paced theatrical act filled with amazing pet tricks that are both dog and family friendly.
The Olate Dogs, all poodle-mix rescue dogs known for entertaining audiences by performing backflips and conga lines in perfect sync, have captured hearts around the world since Richard Olate developed his act on the streets of his native Chile.
Olate grew up poor in South America and began rescuing stray dogs from the street and training them to be part of an amateur show. A third-generation circus performer in the spotlight since he was 12, Olate made it to the United States through hard work and constant struggle to achieve his dreams.
In 2012, The Olate Dogs shot to stardom with their victorious performances and grand-prize win on “America’s Got Talent.” The sweet, funny, and talented dogs and their entertaining handlers have performed all over the country, including at halftime for the 2016 NBA World Champion Cleveland Cavaliers and the 2015 World Champion Golden State Warriors, at Circus Vargas, and as headliners at The Palazzo in Las Vegas.
Now based in Dallas, Texas, the Olate family continues to rescue dogs from shelters and homes and train them to become part of their professional troupe. The Olate Dogs travel across the continent, amazing audiences with their talents and supporting dog rescues and shelters all across America.
While on tour, the family spends much of its time supporting dog rescues and animal shelters, bringing awareness to the need for families to rescue and adopt stray dogs and pets.
