The Pack is Amazon Prime Video’s new global unscripted series that celebrates the unrivaled bond between dogs and their human companions. Hosted by 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.
Our Head of Talent, Anthony Ramos, caught up with one of the LGBTQ contestants, Josh White, who competes with his 3-year-old Standard Poodle named Snow. Josh loves to groom Snow, changing up her look to then go out and take photos of her!
AR: Tell me about your experience on this show! Why did you want to do it?
JW: My experience on the show was the best experience I can ever imagine and with my best friend which is my dog.
Honestly I really just wanted the world to see this amazing bond I share with snow and travel the world with her just was a done deal the prize was just the cherry on top.
AR: How would you describe your bond with Snow? When did she come into your life?
JW: I would describe my bond with snow to be dynamic and literally as one. Ever since I got her at 10 months old she’s been next to my side everyday. She comes with me to work everyday to eat to shop we do it all together
I can’t imagine my life without her really.
AR: Do you feel that LGBTQ people have a particularly deep connection with their pets?
JW: Yes and no. I feel anyone can have a deep connection with their pet as long as you really take those moments to bond.
I will say I feel like LGBTQ people tend to have more pets because like me, I don’t know if I will ever have kids. It’s more complicated, but I just feel like dogs become our kids.
AR: What are some of your favorite looks that you have created with Snow?
JW: I love the unicorn rainbow look for snow, it’s basically her signature look. We only use safe nontoxic dyes for pets and I do it to bring smiles to everyone and she loves all the attention and love as well!
AR: How has been getting to spend even more time together with snow during quarantine? Feel like this show will be a nice escape for people?
JW: Quarantine hasn’t really made us closer because she’s literally always been with me so we just enjoy more cuddling at the house. This show will bring the world together with their dogs and I hope this show and this amazing cast inspiressomeone to want to go out and do this with their own four legged friend.
The Amazon Original series The Pack is available now on Amazon Prime Video.
