Introducing The Take Away The Tears Dog Show

Take Away The Tears provides support, wherever in the world it’s needed, to help relieve the mental and physical torture that so many rescue dogs endure every day of their lives.

Sponsored by 

A small business based in Northumberland offering handmade, bespoke pet accessories.


We are super excited to not just be a trade stand but to be part of the NEDF this year by being a sponsor and supporting a local charity! We can’t wait to meet all the dogs and their owners on what is going to be the BIGGEST dog show in the North East. 

Spotty Dog Design is a brand created out of the love of dogs, nature and all things fun! Our products are designed to be practical whilst also turning heads. 

Each piece is unique and handmade in our studio in Northumberland, which means no two pieces are ever the same. We offer a bespoke service allowing you to customise your accessory to suit your pup's style. 

Our toys have been tried and tested by the Spotty Dog family and friends, to ensure they are nothing but the best, and we will disclose those that have not survived the "Spaniel" test. 

We support other small businesses and include their products in our Human and Home sections, offering treat bags, snoods, snuffle mats and more.

Take Away The Tears

Take Away The Tears was set up in July 2015 by Sue Nuttall, after she saw the plight of so many dogs in places like Cyprus, Romania, the Far East and Sri Lanka.

Take Away The Tears refers to the unseen tears of those dogs that find themselves in such awful conditions, and the daily tears of those on the front line that spend all their time, money and emotional energy saving these dogs – to give them a second chance.


Dog show classes will be announced soon!
