The Empower Pack was a dog act from Season 16 of America's Got Talent. It was eliminated in the audition round.


The Empower Pack is led by head trainer Chrissy Joy, who also lends dogs to movie and TV productions through her Bone-a-Fide Talent Group. She was also the 2018 National Stunt Dog champion and was runner-up for Dog Trainer of the Year in 2019. Her group of dogs is collectively known as "The Joy Crew".


The Empower Pack's audition in Episode 1605 consisted of dogs doing various tricks with a wizard theme set to B.o.B. and Rivers Cuomo's "Magic." Although Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara said "Yes", Howie Mandel and Simon Cowell said "No", eliminating the group from the competition.


The Empower Pack is the first dog act Simon Cowell gave a "no" vote.
