Streaming Service: Amazon Prime Video
No. of Season 1
Last January, Amazon Prime Video announced that it has decided to cancel the reality competition series after just one season. Described as The Amazing Race with dogs, the 10-episode season 1 of the Lindsey Vonn-hosted show features 12 dogs and their human owners traveling around the world to compete in various challenges. The dogs and their owners were accompanied by veterinarians and dog experts to make sure the contestants are kept safe. The winning duo received a $500,000 prize, with an additional $250,000 going to a charity of their choice.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) condemned the show, saying that “animals are individuals – not props for movies and TV shows.” Despite this, an Amazon spokeswoman told Deadline that the animal rights organization’s statement had nothing to do with the streamer’s decision to cancel the series.
