I think it looks good. Not too contrasty at all

Thanks Jim. But I did not shoot in RAW.
I guess next time I should if I think it might need some extra work.
Thanks Julie. The dog (Raven) just seems too black for the rest of the scene to me.
I thought maybe I should have set the flash - or + to get a more even color.

He really doesn't look too black to me, unless he is less black than that in reality. Are you sure it isn't the red collar bothering you?

Hi Loueen
I'm new here and I shoot mostly indoors, but I think you've got a nice balalnce here between flash and ambient light. I think he looks shiney because your fill flash picked up the highlights in his coat - and with black dogs we're not used to getting that shadow detail outdoors.
Maybe burn in the edges of the background (a little vignette) to give it a little depth? Otherwise, I'd say you have a nice flash portrait here!
