Read here, about how others discovered their Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with Ron and I
15 months ago Jim and I lost our beloved pet Pepsi. At that time we decided that we would never go through such heartbreak again. Then in early February of 2014 we both came to the conclusion that as empty nesters we needed to fill the hole in our hearts that Pepsi left. We talked about what kind of pet we could possibly get that would be as good a companion as Pepsi. Pepsi was a Brittany/spaniel mix and had the most loving personality one could wish for. Because of our love of the spaniel breed we decided to get a Cavalier. Jim researched many Cavalier breeders on line and after weeks of searching came across the Radles webpsge. After reading all the positive testimonials and wonderful things people had to say about Deb and Ron Radle we decided to give them a call. And after one phone call to Deb and 2 hours on the phone we knew we were on our way to filling the void that Pepsi left. Although it was going to be a long journey getting our puppies home we made the decision to move forward with the Radles and get two Cavaliers.
Along with a weekly phone call from Deb she sent videos and puppy pictures 3 to 4 times per week after our pups were born. Logistically we could not visit the pups as they were in Michigan and we are in Wisconsin, so through the process of video and pictures we were able to pick out our litte girl Remi and our little boy Codie and watch them grow into the great pups that we have today. We both fell in love with our pups before we even held them in our arms.
For anyone that is considering a Cavalier please don’t hesitate to give Ron and Deb Radle a call. The Radles love the breed and take great care to provide healthy, happy and well adjusted pets.
And not only did we get two beautiful additions to our family we gained two wonderful friends as well.

I spent hours on the internet researching choices for a puppy to add to our home. We are a family of 4, Who lost 2 Great Danes 2 years earlier.
Our 6 year old was very afraid of dogs as a result of living with 2 giant dogs. So this was a tricky job for me to add a new 4 legged member. I found CavaliersofMichigan.com, it looked like a possibility so I called. I talked with Deb for quite awhile. We went later that month for a visit at their home, only to fall in love!!! We absolutely love everything about Deb, Ron & their Cavaliers. My daughter who was once afraid of all dogs, has not only conquered her fears, but she LOVES dogs now! Our 2 Cavaliers are amazing, I can’t say enough about their gentle manner, adorable personallities, & funny ways. They are the perfect dog in my eyes! Deb & Ron have since become our friends, who we keep in contact with regularly. The entire experience has been life changing & I highly recommend to everyone I know..adding a King Chalres Cavailer to your family…you won’t be sorry!!!!!!

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for everything that you have done with helping us to bring Bella to our home. Your professionalism with the way you involve all the parents during the birthing process and during their first stages of life until we are able to bring our little girl home is something I have never experienced and feel it is such a priceless experience. Also, we appreciate how you started training Bella with going potty and with using the leash. Because you treat all the dogs as family members, Bella has acclimated to her surroundings and dealing with new people and dogs like a pro. She is definitely fearless but at the same time so respectful of Bennie. This has helped him as he has taken her under his wing and gave him a new confidence we did not see before.
I feel blessed that we were able to “find” you and Ron and hope to stay in touch in the future. I wish you well in the new year!
I will give your business card to my Vet’s office for anyone who may be interested in the “best dog in the world”

I am not even sure where to begin. Mike and I were looking for a good breeder for Cavalier King Charles Spaniels I searched on the internet and came across the website. I sent an e-mail with a quick response back and made a phone call. We knew from the very first phone call that this was meant to be. Deb was awesome from the start she had a lot of knoweldge and knew what she was doing with breeding. We sent a deposit and our 9 month adventure began our Ruby Kelly was born on June 1, 2013. Deb kept in contact with us from the very first e-mail that was sent. We were kept up to date every step of the way every phone call we had with Deb we kept saying this is such a blessing and never even questioned if we were doing the right thing we knew that it was right with out having any doubt. Deb has a lot of knowledge about the breed and is very confident in what she is doing. All of the dogs that they have a very well taken care of and treated just like family. We received many phone calls and Deb was great keeping in contact. The day that Kenzie went into labor I received a text message that labor had started it was such an exciting time for everyone it felt like we were right there while they were all being born. We received pictures and updates often after the birth. We made the trip to visit when the puppies were just a couple of weeks old. Deb and Ron were very welcoming with letting us into their home and letting us see all of the dogs they have along with puppies that were currently in the home. There was never any pressure to pick out our puppy until we were ready to do so. We made another trip up when the puppies were about six weeks old and knew right away which one belonged to us and it was great because Deb in knowing her new mommies and daddies had the same one in mind as we did but did not say anything until we had made our decision. Deb was willing to meet up with us when it was time for our precious Kelly to come home. We have been very happy with the whole process and have a wonderful, very spoiled baby she is the best very well rounded puppy. I would never hesistate to recommend Deb and Ron to anyone nor would we ever look for another breeder because Deb and Ron will always be the breeder we contact. We did not only get in touch with an awesome breeder we have developed a wonderful friendship. Every where we go we get such great response from everyone who comes in contact with Kelly from how friendly, outgoing and beautiful she is. The whole process for us has truly been a great blessing in our life there were so many things that were so right about this. We cannot THANK Deb and Ron enough for the joy they have given in our life with the new friendship that we have gained and the beautiful Kelly that has come into our life. Another thing that is great is that contact did not stop once we received Kelly we still keep in contact with pictures (now we get to send them to Deb) phone calls, text messages. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Deb and Ron from Radle Cavaliers, Cavaliers of Michigan.com to anyone.
WITHOUT QUITE REALIZING IT, MY HUSBAND AND I WENT LOOKING FOR A PUPPY! WE LOOKED UP KING CHARLES CAVALIERS AND FOUND DEB AND RON RADLE’S WEBSITE UNDER WWW.CAVALIERSOFMICHIGAN.COM WE WERE GOING TO BE CAMPING IN PETOSKEY LAST SUMMER AND SO CALLED TO SEE IF WE COULD ARRANGE A VISIT. DEB AND RON WERE SO WELCOMING FROM THE FIRST MINUTE. IT WAS AMAZING HOW WELL THEY KNEW ALL OF THEIR DOGS PERSONALITIES; HOW ORGANIZED THE KENNELS AND HOME WERE AND GEARED TO THE ADULT DOGS AND PUPS. IT WAS CLEAR HOW MUCH DEB AND RON LOVE WHAT THEY DO. THEY ARE NOT JUST “BREEDERS”. IT WAS VERY EVIDENT HOW MUCH THEY DEEPLY CARE FOR EACH AND EVERY DOG, AND REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHO IS TAKING THEIR PUPPIES (AS IT SHOULD BE).
WE DECIDED TO PUT AN ORDER IN FOR A MALE OR FEMALE TRI-COLOR FOR DECEMBER! DEB KEPT US INFORMED ALL ALONG HOW MACKENZIE (RUBY’S MAMA) WAS DOING AND CALLED IMMEDIATELY WHEN SHE DELIVERED THE PUPS WE DIDN’T GET OUR TRI-COLOR AT THAT TIME, BUT DID GET A RUBY FEMALE AND FELL IN LOVE. WE APTLY NAMED HER “RUBY”. RUBY HAS BEEN SUCH A GREAT LITTLE GAL. LOVES CUDDLING AND PLAYS, PLAYS, PLAYS! RUBY WAS BORN ON DECEMBER 6TH, 2012, AND WE DROVE UP TO GET HER IN FEBRUARY DURING THE SNOWS. WE HAVE HAD GOLDEN RETRIEVERS AND IRISH SETTERS IN THE PAST, AND DIDN’T WANT A BIG DOG AGAIN. CAVALIERS ARE A PERFECT LAPDOG. RUBY IS A WONDERFUL CHANGE IN BREED FOR US, AND NOT A BIG SHEDDER. SHE IS PERFECT IN EVERY WAY AND WE ABSOLUTELY HAVE FALLEN HEAD-OVER-HEELS IN LOVE WITH HER, AND BROUGHT SOMETHING TO OUR LIVES AND OUR FAMILY THAT WE HADN’T REALIZED WE HAD BEEN MISSING.
WE HOPED FOR THAT TRI-COLOR TO BE BORN IN MARCH IN THE NEXT LITTER AND WERE BLESSED WITH REILLY! REILLY WAS BORN IN LATE MARCH, AND WE DROVE UP AND BACK IN A DAY IN EARLY MAY (WITH RUBY, OF COURSE) TO GET HIM. ALL OF THE SIX PUPPIES WERE THERE AND RUBY WAS ENTHRALLED WITH ALL THESE LITTLE PLAYMATES! SHE WAS VERY GENTLE AND TIMID WITH HER NEW BABY BROTHER. DEB, DAN AND I JUST SAT ON THE FLOOR IN DEB’S KITCHEN AND HUNG OUT FOR QUITE SOME TIME TO LET RUBY GET TO KNOW HER BROTHER AND PLAY AND CUDDLE THE OTHER FIVE PUPS. (IF I COULD HAVE, I WOULD HAVE SNUCK LITTLE MISS ANNABELLE IN MY POCKET, SHE WAS SOOO CUTE AND TINY)!
WE HAVE BEEN HOME NOW FOR A FEW WEEKS WITH REILLY, AND IT HAS BEEN SO MUCH FUN WATCHING THEM PLAY AND TUSSLE AND SHARE AND NOT SHARE. REILLY FOLLOWS RUBY’S LEAD AND SHE HAS BEEN KNOWN TO LEAD HIM TO MISCHIEF. REILLY LOVES STEALING HER TOY OR TREAT OR FOOD, JUST LIKE A PESKY SIBLING MAY DO AND SHE TOLERATES IT. SHE IS A WONDERFUL OLDER SISTER!
WE WANT TO THANK DEB AND RON FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE IN AQUIRING OUR NEW PUPPIES. WE WERE SENT PHOTOS AND VIDEOS NEARLY EVERYDAY WHILE WAITING THE EIGHT WEEKS FOR THEM TO BE OURS. DEB ANSWERED ALL OURS QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS BEFORE AND AFTER THE PUPPIES CAME HOME WITH US. WE HAVE MADE WONDERFUL NEW FRIENDS AND HIGHLY WOULD RECOMMEND DEB AND RON IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A KING CHARLES CAVALIER.
SINCERELY, DAN AND MARY CARD
It has been two weeks today since we have had our Lucy. What a joy she has been to our family, our daughter Mary, loves to chase Lucy around in the yard and watching Lucy chase Mary down the street on walks is priceless, with those ears bouncing the whole way. Deb and Ron are wonderful breeders and people. She sent us pictures and video throughout the 8 weeks, Deb, never made me feel as I was bothering her with all my questions. I don’t know who I was more excited to meet, Deb or our new puppy. Our family truly feels blessed and very grateful for Deb and Ron.

It has been almost 2 month since Hana(Makenna) joined my family. She is a sweet little angel and everyone loves her. Many people have asked me where I got my puppy from. (I can totally understand, because I would do the same if I see Hana walking on the street!) And every time when people ask, I am so thrilled to tell them how great my puppy search experience was with Deb.
To have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was my dream since I was a teenager. That is why I spent long time looking for a good breeder to find a right puppy. To have healthy puppy was important to me, but more than that, I was looking in to breeder’s personality. Because I believe when puppies were raised by warm hear-ted people they will be sweet and loving too.
I have contacted many breeders in NY,however I could not feel connected to none of them.
They were too businesslike, and spoke about their puppies like their products which I found very uncomfortable. But then I landed on Deb’s website. Since she was located in Michigan I was hesitant to contact, but could not resist how adorable they looked so decided to sent her an email. Deb responded immediately and told me that she never shipped puppy to NY but she was willing to look in to it. As soon as I receive her email I felt very relieved. and it did not take too long to know how caring person Deb is. She sent me photos and videos everyday, updated me how the puppies were doing. Her husband Ron was in the videos and pictures often, giving kisses and hugging them. The puppies looked so much loved and looked so happy! Their puppies looked amazing, but more that that, Deb and Ron’s personality was the key element which made me reach my decision
There were 2 depositors ahead of me and took about 2 weeks to find out the other depositors final pick. I kept bothering Deb almost everyday to see what there picks were. She never got annoyed of me and kept me updated. When the other finalized the picks, she sent me an email right away. Even after my choices was settled, I received photo/video updates from her until the last minute before she was dropped of to be delivered to NY.
If anyone is looking for a loving sweet cavalier, I would highly recommend Deb and Ron. Not only her puppies are beautiful, they were raised in a stress free environment with lots of love. Deb and Ron have made my puppy search experience so memorable and I am truly lucky to have met such a wonderful people like them.

Our family was blessed with a new member in February, 2013. We welcomed Winston into our home and have fallen even more in love with him than we did at first sight.
Hi, my name is Brady Dodson. I am 10 years old. Deb is a great breeder! There are so many good things to say about Deb I don’t know where to start. Deb skyped me almost everyday so I could see my new puppy Chief. She is very loving to all of her puppies so I knew my puppy was coming from a good environment. If you are looking for a Cavalier, choose Deb!
I can say this- if you are looking for a Cavalier then look no further! My son Brady had been asking for a cavalier for months. We found Deb through some local residents who had recently got Cavaliers from her and Ron. Deb is so caring, knowledgeable and patient. She spent so much of her time skyping and visiting with Brady over the 2 months we waited to take Chief home. She even brought him to our home so we could surprise Brady with his arrival. This is Brady’s first puppy and Deb will always be a valued friend for making the experience so wonderful for him. My parents have had countless puppies over the span of their life and they were truly in awe of how Deb runs her breeding (they are hinting at getting one now too!). Chief has been with us for about 10 weeks and we have had several questions, which Deb is always happy to answer. She is always so patient and happy to take all of our calls and answer questions. Thank you Den and Ron, I am sure we will have another puppy experience with you in the future!

Several months ago our good friends purchased a Cavalier puppy from Deb Radle. Upon meeting their ‘Ruby’ (a Ruby colored puppy from Makenzie and Colby) our fate was sealed. We are so fortunate to now have our ‘Misty’. The entire experience has been wonderful. We were in contact with Deb just a couple of days after Misty was born and were welcomed to visit her any time. On our first visit we could see that Deb is very serious about the pre and postnatal care of her puppies. These pups are raised ‘in home’ with plenty of tender, loving care. We feel Deb is of the highest integrity and very knowledgeable. The foundation Misty received in her first weeks is obvious by her sweet personality. And during this time Deb sent us pictures and video of Misty’s growth and development. This connection made us bond with our puppy even before we brought her home. Deb was also a fountain of information with preparations for bringing Misty into our home; including helping us introduce her to another family member, our twelve year old housecat Scarlett. Deb has stayed in contact with us to make sure any of our questions or concerns were answered.
We feel very blessed to have this wonderful little puppy and to have made great friends with both Deb & Ron. My husband and I know that our experience is shared by everyone getting a Cavalier puppy from Deb.

Mulligan came to live with us early in June 2012.He was born on March 13 and soon after we visited him at Deb and Ron’s home. We fell in love immediately and recognized the responsibility that his care would involve. I was so impressed with the loving, gentle and knowledgeable way that Deb cared for the puppies. We visited our puppy a second time because we could not take him home until early June due to family commitments.No question that we were Hooked by this little guy that we named Mulligan!!!We called Deb numerous times with questions like what to feed him, how to find the right vet, etc..Deb kept us posted with e-mail pictures and videos as we waited for the big day to arrive. Finally the day came when we would pick up Mulligan. He has brought so much love, joy and laughter to our lives. He is very smart and seems to catch on to our commands and requests rapidly.It is so entertaining to watch him play with his toys, work for treats, etc. He has become a vital part of our lives. I love the end of the day when he sits on the couch and snuggles with one of us. It is amazing to watch him grow and learn new behaviors. We were fortunate to spend time with his mom and dad, Riley and Colby.They appear to be wonderful, loving dogs.They seem happy and healthy with lots of land to run and play on. It is a special treat for Mulligan to have play time with his sister Maggie. They meet at the Coffee Roasters frequently. Deb has remained a constant source of guidance and support for us. She enjoys hearing about her puppies from time to time.
Sincerely, Ann & Lois
I have purchased two Cavalier King Charles from Debbie. Lexi is blenheim and Claire a tri-color. I know Debbie as a friend and I can tell you that she takes tremendous care of her dogs. Pre-natal through delivery, and on through the sale. Debbie sends photos and updates until the pup comes to the new home. She continues to stay in touch to see how her little ones are adapting to new families and homes. I cannot think of purchasing a Cavalier King Charles from anyone but Debbie. She keeps excellent records, keeps the dogs healthy and on a great diet with a exercise regiment. She is a person of integrity and is a loving and compassionate individual. I have two beautiful Cavaliers I wouldn’t trade for the world. If you are considering purchasing a cavalier, Debbie is the person to contact. This breed of dog is loving and has a very gentle nature. They love to love you. Don’t miss out on the experience, it will enrich your own health and your life.

I would recommend Radle Cavaliers to anyone! Our breeder was Deb Radle, and there are no words to explain her, she is AWESOME! Once we had contact, she returned our call in less than an hour.. She gave us some information about the litter and that she only had one puppy that was available. She immediately shared a video with us and my husband and I were sold! I know that is what got my husband hooked. The video was a real selling point. After that she would email us with pictures and updates. She also started to call our puppy by the name that we chose, so our sweet Kona got used to her name. Deb is very professional and knowledgeable about the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breed and also offers several tips. We cant thank her enough and will be buying another one someday from her because we cant just have one of this precious breed. We get compliments from everyone, they always ask us what kind dog she is and where we got her. My husband and I are more than willing to brag about the wonderful experience we had with our breeder Deb.

In January,2013, we brought home our new family member, Brutus. My husband and I had been thinking of bringing a dog into our home for over a year, but we couldn’t decide what breed would be best for us and our two cats. After researching Cavaliers, we decided to start looking for breeders and it wasn’t long until we were blessed to find Deb and Ron.
Deb was in contact with us from the day Brutus was born showing us pictures and videos of him and his brothers and sister. We were able to watch Brutus grow up, even though we were four hours away.
From the moment I first spoke with Deb I knew she loved her dogs. It became even more evident after her and Ron invited us to their home to meet Brutus. It was here where we met all of their dogs and were able to hear the stories about all of them. Their dogs are their family and they love each and every one of them.
We couldn’t be happier welcoming Brutus into our hearts and home. We are so thankful he came from such wonderful loving people. We not only gained a new family member, but we also made great friends along the way.
