I suspect that the dog smell is definitely the trigger here. If I ever come home with dog smell on me, Apollo bolts and hides, whereas Luna isn’t phased. Even before I got to the part about the dog I was going to ask if you had changed anything about your smell (hand wash, soap, shampoo, hand cream etc) as sometimes that can even affect some bunnies.

I suspect that she is still frightened after her initial few shocks with the smell and the fear. Is the door to her room open with a baby gate? Or is the door kept closed? Talk to her before you even get to the room, calling her name etc so that she knows your coming, and make sure that you’re not wearing the shoes that you wore when you saw the dog. Then keep doing as you have been, talking to her softly, moving slowly. She’ll come around. She just got a fright and instinct is a hard barrier to break through once that kicks in.
