Thanks for reaching out for support, it's really great to hear that you aren't pressuring your toddler into interacting with your brother's dog and are there to give her reassurance when she's scared.
Our forums focus on supporting parents of teenagers, however this article from Raising Children's Network might have some helpful information around why your daughter might be experiencing these apprehensions with this dog. If you feel like your daughter's anxiety persists, talking to your GP or a counsellor might be something to look into.
