To celebrate the premiere of “The Pack,” Amazon Prime Video created the ultimate weekend for dogs and their owners in New York City.

Starting on Friday, Nov. 20,  local New York City businesses will offer giveaways, discounted or free services, surprise pup-grades, and gifts with purchase throughout Packed Weekend. Dog owners are invited to bring their pets to experience pampering, exciting activities, and a way to help support local businesses. The weekend will run through Sunday, Nov. 22.

Throughout the weekend, local businesses will have promotions, giveaways and more for dogs and their pet parents to enjoy, as well as discounted veterinary services at The Neighborhood Vet and Bond Vet. New York Therapy Animals will be hosting a virtual meet-and-greet for families and their furry friends to meet their therapy animals and participate in interactive activities.

On Nov. 21, Amazon Prime Video will screen the first four episodes of “The Pack” at The Big Screen at the Hudson Yards for an outdoor, dog-friendly viewing party. The fun continues all weekend long with the Pack Walk Challenge. Those who wish to participate can use the  MapMyFitness or MyFitnessPal apps from Under Armour to participate in “20 Workouts in 30 Days” or “30 Miles in 30 Days” (depending on which app you use) to help achieve the largest pack walk ever.

During the Pack Walk Challenge, pet parents are encouraged to donate to The American Heart Association’s Healthy Bond for Life, Environmental Defense Fund, and Best Friends Animal Society right in the app. Prime Video will generously match consumer donations up to $100,000 (split evenly among the charities) for a 24-hour window beginning Nov. 21. After completing the Challenge, eligible participants will have the chance to win a prize package, including roundtrip travel for four to anywhere Alaska Airlines flies.
