Most dogs who are on-leash will dislike or show some mild discomfort about being sniffed by a loose dog. The dog who is on-leash doesn't have the option of normal body language communication and the dog who is off-leash doesn't have the benefit of being able to correctly read the other dog's body language cues.

Best option IMO when an on-leash dog is approached by an off-leash dog (assuming the off-leash dog isn't approaching with aggression) is to body block the loose dog and move along steadily to an area where the loose dog cannot follow. Unless the off-leash dog actually did something like bite her or tackle her, then I highly doubt that she is traumatized. Even if the off leash dog jumped at her, most dogs will shake that off and move on.

Is there any chance your female is in heat?
