There have been human reality shows with dogs. There have been human reality shows with competitions, but never before has there been a reality show that paired dogs with their humans till now. New to Amazon Prime Video is a new dog reality show series called The Pack. This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx on behalf of Amazon Prime Video to tell you more about The Pack, who will enjoy it, and how you can be part of a Packed Weekend. We’re also going to share a few new ideas to help you have your own adventure with your dog.
What is The Pack?
The Pack, is a new global dog reality series that celebrates the unrivaled bond between dogs and their human companions. There will be no script! Anything can happen!
Hosted by Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn and her canine co-host Lucy, the series features twelve teams of dogs and their humans on an epic adventure across multiple continents.
Teams will compete for a prize of $750,000, $500,000 to the winners plus an additional $250,000 prize amount for the animal charity of their choice.

Watch The Pack on Amazon Prime
The Amazon Original series The Pack will premiere on November 20, 2020 on Amazon Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories. Watch it with the Amazon Prime App on your tv or smart device.
What will the dog reality show competition be like?
To win the monetary prize for themselves and their charity, the teams will have to depend on their understanding of one another’s strengths and weaknesses and prove they have the strongest bond in the pack.
In each location, the human and dog duos will face fun and exciting challenges.
Is The Pack dog competition safe for the dogs?
The challenges, on The Pack on Amazon Prime, were designed with a team of accredited veterinarians and certified dog experts that also accompany the group on their exciting journey. Everyone is working together to making sure it is a positive experience for the dogs, their best friends, and viewers at home.
Who in Your Pack Will Like Amazon’s New Dog Reality Show, The Pack?
The short answer is everyone.
What dog doesn’t enjoy seeing other dogs on tv?
If your dog is anything like our Jersey, it will howl, moan, and bark watching The Pack. It’s almost as if our golden retriever wants to jump right into the screen to play along with other dogs. I fully expect that when Jersey sees those 12 different dogs competing he’s going to want to play along with them.
Is The Pack appropriate for children?
I fully expect The Pack, dog reality show, to be appropriate for kids. The focus of the show is the bond between a dog and their ‘best friend’ and if they can compete and bond in such a way that allows them to win over the other teams.
I don’t just think the show will be appropriate for kids but I also believe it is going to be one of their new favorite shows. This is a feel-good reality series where families can come around the TV together and ooh and aww over the cuteness of the dogs, how much the dogs are able to accomplish, and the bonds they form with their owners. I fully expect there to be lots of laughs as dogs do the unexpected. After all dogs can be unpredictable. I also anticipate kids being inspired to use some of their indoor time to come up with new ways to play with their own dogs.
4 New Playtime Activities inspired by our The Pack, dog activity pack.
As part of our partnership to promote The Pack on Amazon Prime we were sent a gift box filled will doggy toys. You can find any of these on Amazon with our affiliate links.
Ball pit – Ball pits don’t just have to be for kids. Pull out that old ball pit, or get a new one. Then, fill it with tennis balls. Or for true doggy enrichment time, add a variety of balls with different textures. Maybe hide some doggie treats in the ball pit.
Tug of War – Have you ever played tug of war with your dog. One of our golden retriever’s favorite toys are the tug of war dog toys with a ball on one end and rope on the other, sometimes referred to as a Nuts for Knots rope dog toy. We’ll either tug as he pulls or he’ll have his own version of tug a war. Shaking his head all about, the ball stays put in his mouth but the rope swings all over the place.
Whistle Ball – With the Chuck It! balls, dogs will hear a whistle as you toss the ball in the air for them to catch.
Doggy Incredibubbles Doggy Bubbles – Did you know they make bubbles for dogs? It’s crazy! They do! I didn’t know that until this The Pack gift box came. Pet Qwerks makes bubbles for dogs. Not only that but they smell like peanut butter. Your dog will love it! Who will catch the bubbles quicker the kids or the dog?
What about teens? Will they enjoy The Pack?
Whether you have do good teenagers who want to change the world, teens that turn everything into a competition, or teens that love dogs, they will find something to love about the show.
In addition to the money the winners will receive for the dog charity of their choice, philanthropy has been part of the show’s mission from the start. The Pack donated $250,000 during filming to multiple charities and animal rescue organizations in each country, helping to pay it forward to dogs and those who love them around the world.
What about the grown ups?
There is no doubt grown ups will love this show. If you’ve grown up with dogs or currently have a dog you’re going to live vicariously through these 12 teams. Your favorite team will likely remind you of the bond you have with your own dog and you’ll be cheering them on to win.
There’s also something to be said for the pure enjoyment we get as parents watching our kids get joy from something. I didn’t grown up with dogs. Our Jersey is the first dog I’ve ever had, but knowing how much Jersey has bonded with my boys and how much fun they have together… it means the world to me.
