This isn't a different problem from shooting a person with very dark hair. The answer is how you light the hair, not to over expose it. Just as you'd put a hairlight on dark hair, for a dark-coated animal, the main light should be set like a hairlight. I'm talking about the old-school hairlights, not the modern style of "edge lighting" or "separation lighting."

This is a time you want specular highlights--it's the specular highlights that create the image of a dark-coated animal on a dark background-- so you'd put away the soft light modifiers and go with straight reflectors.

Managed to get the black one in the sun and the white one in the shadow - though capturing them together in one picture remains a challenge...... The white one managed to stick his head in the sun, resulting in the top of his head nearly washed out (but details have been lost).
