The Olate Dogs Variety Show

Sunday, March 4 @ 3pm

Quality entertainment for all ages is something we take great pride in and this event is for children and children at heart.

In 2012 on the seventh season, the audience of America’s Got Talent would meet a family like no other. A father, a son and a story that touches the heart of everyone that sees the bond between man and his best friend; or in this case friends. The Olate Dogs and Olate family were the winning participants from Season 7 of America’s Got Talent, receiving the $1,000,000 and headlining The Palazzo in Vegas that year. The 22 Olate Dogs create a high-energy, fast-paced theatrical act filled with doggie friendly and amazing pet tricks. The stunts, furiously wagging tales and joyful leaps into their owners arms will delight young and old.
