Stue the dog






Spirit of the Dog is a registered charity with its head office based in Tendring, North Essex. The dogs are looked after at kennels near Maldon and are available for viewing on an appointment only basis.
We are a group of dog lovers who want to stop the needless destruction of dogs with so-called behavioural problems. We believe with the right home, the right owner, and the right training ANY dog can be a balanced, happy and valuable part of a family.
Alongside our role in helping to rehabilitate and rehome dogs in need we also work alongside owners and offer training advice, tips, techniques and support as well as one to one training programmes and behavioural work. Our aim being to try and correct and resolve many of the problems which could later lead to an owner looking to rehome their dog/s and try and tackle this issue on both fronts.
We are constantly fundraising to be able to give the dogs the best quality of life whilst they are with us being rehabilitated and getting ready for a new life in a new home. For more information please read here.
For more help with training your own dog and information on ways to help us, our fundraising events, and dogs that need homes please keep an eye on our Website, Facebook and Instagram pages.
Although the Facebook page is the most up to date and active presence online.
