Olate Dogs Rescue Tour stops in Macon
Macon, GA-- Nicholas Olate and his father Richard Olate won the 2012 America's Got Talent television competition.
The have been touring the country with their 11 performing pups.
Nicholas Olate said he has been performing with his father since he was about 5 years old.
"It all started with my father when he was a young man. He was actually very poor and he's from Chile, South America and there's a lot of stray dogs in Chile," said Nicholas Olate. "So he got a dog off the street and then slowly through training and through patience and a lot of effort he slowly built up to where he is today."
Each performance showcases a variety of the dogs' talents.
They have a fashion show, comedy, film, and of course acrobatic tricks.
Nicholas Olate said the show really is a good time.
"You never know what kind of day somebody is having, you know?" said Nicholas Olate. "Somebody could have a rough day and they could come to your performance and have a good time for an hour and a half and maybe forget about their worries and just laugh and be filled with joy and that's a wonderful thing. I think it's just really great."
The tour will continue on February 15th in Knoxville, TN at the Women's Basketball Game at the University of Tennessee.
