Typically I would not recommend cutting off more than 10 percent of the tree at a time. If you decide to, then do this over a weeks time, so that the tree has time to recover in between cuts. There are a few things to be aware of about cutting dogwood trees, and they are explained in this article: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/dogwood/trimming-dogwood-trees.htm
