This book isn’t aimed specifically at children scared of dogs but has lots of dog-meeting etiquette and general good advice on how to approach a dog, which would also be good if your child was too eager to cuddle animals they were unfamiliar with.
My grandson was very interested in the book and, even after several reads with me, he took it to his Mum to read yet again. This book was a winner.

spend sometime at Granny's with her dachshund. He is
so abusive to our cat that I was a bit concerned about what he
might do to her old pooch when she was in the other room.
This book was great. He asked me to read it every day for
two weeks, and when we go out to the park, even though
he is terribly shy with adults, he will ask dog owners diligently,
"May I Pet Your Dog?" before approaching.
The book was well worth the price because I don't worry
about him messing around with strange dogs now.
And it's really a cute book. It won't give your kids
nightmares about saber-toothed dobermans. Mostly,
it teaches etiquette and respect for animals.
