Generally speaking, the sheen of a stone floor (e.g., shiny or dull) comes from the actual surface of the stone...not from a topical coating of some sort.

Etching is the physical degrading of a microscopically smooth surface and eating part of it away to leave the surface microscopically rough. Many would say that a honed surface (depending on the grit) and an etched surface may look very similar. Do you have a picture of where the dog stripped the tile?

By the way, thanks for the update.
