5. The World of Microchips, with Dr. Doug Black
Today, we take microchips for granted, but they weren't always so common! This week, we're joined by Dr. Doug Black, co-founder of Central Animal Records and one of the team who introduced microchips into the dog world. We discuss how microchips started in Australia, why they are so important, the different databases that exist, and why every owner who has found a lost dog has a microchip to thank!

4. Pedigree Breeding, with Di Gooding
This week, we dive into the world of Pedigree Breeding, with RightPaw breeder Di Gooding - from Rynkls Shar Pei and Chow Chows. We learn all about what a pedigree is, why breeds have 'standards', and the importance of trying to preserve these breeds for the future. We also discuss the role that newer 'cross-breeds' have to play in this.
