I planted Dogwood in a semi sun/saded spot, between trees, but it doesn't seem happy and is loosing leaves though I water, fed and have sprayed it once thinking it had some sort of something eating it.

Might be worth having a look at the roots, see if they are pot shaped or have any problems
Stupid question, has it been well watered?

Not a stupid question Rebecca.  Stifyn plantIng between those trees means a dryish spot.  Dogwoods love water and need some moisture at least initially.

I would make a recess around the dogwood and mound up soil as well to make a sort of well.  Then water as much as possible.  I think ??ou will notice the difference.

However, I,would move it in the  autumn to a better, more water retemtive spot.

I was wondering about water, i use dog wood for wreaths in the winter, its easy to bend because its still quite wet
