Hello, my name is Cynthia Vogelsong, and I would like to introduce myself and my family to you. I am a mother of two, a daughter named Shyann, a son named Gage, and married to a wonderful husband who in many people’s eyes is truly the “Dog Whisperer”. He has been a dog trainer for nearly 25yrs now, along with his experience in dog breeding is tremendous. So it was a perfect fit for me when I met him because I have been a dog lover ALL my life, I have owned dogs All my life, and in the past 10yrs have been breeding dogs. If there was an area I had limited experience in, I would say that was the actual training of dogs above and beyond just the very basics of basic obedience, and my husband more than fills those shoes. That allows us to rear the most social, well rounded, happy puppies out there.
In 1990, my husband was raising, training, and breeding AKC English Springer Spaniels. He was raising field and show quality dogs. During this time he was doing a great deal of basic and advanced obedience training for all sorts of breeds and assisting folks in the training of their dogs in achieving Titles such as the “CGC” through AKC. During this time period, I owned a few dogs, ranging from a Lab to a toy poodle, but this is also when I owned my first Cavalier, and I can truly say I will NEVER own or breed another dog again. They are an amazing dog, they are the best family/companion dog out there in the dog world. They were bred for one sole purpose, and that was to be the foot and lap warmers for King Charles, hence how they got their name, and that speaks volumes into how their energy and disposition is, because why they were created transitions into the Cavaliers of today.
In early 2000, this is when I met my husband, ironically he at the time owned not one but 3 Cavaliers, and he shared the same views and opinions about Cavaliers. So it appeared to be on all levels a perfect match for me, and we married and merged our love of dogs, knowledge, and experience of dogs, along with joining our Cavaliers and creating them their own unique little family. During this time my husband expanded his training knowledge and began training Service and Therapy dogs for the disabled for a company out of Swanton Ohio called Assistance Dogs of America Inc. (ADAI), who has since merged with the Ability Center of Toledo Ohio, and altered their name to Assistance Dogs for Achieving Independence Inc.(ADAI) This company primary uses Labs and Golden Retrievers, because one of the biggest needs a disabled person struggles with is retrieving items, and Labs and Goldens are best suited for that since it has been their purpose for centuries.

These dogs also provide assistance in opening and shutting doors, drawers, and cabinets, helping an individual get dressed, walking assistance, to even answering the telephone for an individual. If a dog doesn’t achieve Service dog status, it can achieve becoming a Therapy dog, and the opportunity is endless, and the biggest responsibility of a Therapy dog would be spreading Love and Doggie Kisses, and bringing smiles to people’s faces abroad. Especially in Schools, Hospitals, Nursing Homes, and Disaster Situations. This is where our Cavaliers come in, while they are a small dog and could not perform all the duties of a Service Dog. They are perfectly suited to become a Therapy Dog because all Cavaliers enjoy spreading “Love and Doggie Kisses”, and they truly bring smiles to everyone’s faces everywhere we go.
So this is how everything started, we started out small, continued to improve our Lines as our business and popularity have grown. We have truly invested our lives in this, and because of that, we have developed a breeding program of heavily Championed Cavaliers, offering them for sale for multiple purposes, from becoming a Show dog themselves, competing in small dog Agility, becoming a Therapy Dog, or just becoming that perfect family companion. We as a family will raise some of our own stock to also become Therapy dogs of the future, and I want to stress as a family because both I and our children have pursued achieving our certification in becoming certified Service Dog trainers as my husband has held for over 10yrs now. We love our Cavaliers and they truly are our life’s passion. Everything we do is hands-on, from the minute a puppy is born into this world, and when we incorporate the experience and skills from the training aspect into puppies we bring into the world. It truly provides our clients with a well rounded, very confident, well socialized, lifelong friend. This is our passion and preserving and protecting the Cavalier breed in our common goal as a family. So take a look at the website, review the services we offer, enjoy our dogs as we do, and if you have any questions, please contact us.

"I live in a pet-friendly apartment & was looking for a dog breed w/ a sweet temperament, smart, easy to train & loves kids & ppl. After much research, I found the Cavalier King Charles spaniel next task was to find a respectable breeder as I am very careful who I buy a puppy from & after checking out several different breeders in the Ohio/ Michigan area I decided on Cav Corral... Best decision I made... Cynthia & Lee are very knowledgeable about the breed and animals in general, they were able to answer any & all questions & concerns I had. I was very impressed w/ how well they take care of their animals & I must say I have never met anyone who dedicates their lives to their family & pets as they do. I was also impressed with the fact that they don't just sell their puppies to anyone. Clearly, it isn't all about the $ to them, these ppl truly love animals & love doing what they do! When you buy a puppy from them you are not just a customer, you are a friend.. Furthermore, if you have any concerns about your pet after you take your pet home they will be more than happy to help you. I found the Cavalier King Charles spaniel next task. I fell in love with this breed & If you are looking for a puppy look no further than Cav Corral, I promise you won't be disappointed. I must warn you though once you get one of their puppies it's kind of like eating chips you will want more than one! This is me & my Tri colored Cavalier Gypsy & I plan on getting another one from them in 6 months."

Best experience I have ever had purchasing a dog. Although this is my 4th King Charles. We have also purchased more than 11-15 Saints and have never been treated so well. I like that I could see the entire facility & all the dogs. Many other dogs we have purchased they showed you 2 males or 2 females and would not let you see anything else. This is not the case with Lee & Cindy. After losing my sweet boy last year in November I never thought I could do this again. The way they treat the animals just reaffirmed to me why I fell in love with this breed years ago. I will recommend you to anyone looking for a dog. You are truly too notch. Can't wait to take her on our first trip. I know she will do great.

We are so grateful for meeting Lee and Cynthia. After checking many, many various breeds of puppies and also checking out rescuing puppy (s) from dog shelter(s), we came across an ad for "Cavalier King Charles" puppies. They(Cavalier Corral) were willing to spend hours explaining the advantages of a Cavalier. We originally only wanted a female puppy, but Lee and Cynthia explained to us that there was very little difference within the Cavalier breed between the two. We settled on a little boy and are extremely happy with our choice. Lee and Cynthia delivered our "Beamer" to our house and spent a good two hours answering all our questions and making sure we were comfortable with our new little family member. We would highly recommend them to anyone interested in adding a Cavalier puppy to their family. If you question, "Boy" or "Girl" we feel(our experience) that there is really very little difference.
