The dump(8) manual page doesn't have any examples.  It does, though,
document the -x and -X options:

     -x snap-backup
             Use a snapshot with snap-backup as backup for this dump.  See
             fss(4) for more details.  Snapshot support is experimental.  Be
             sure you have a backup before you use it.

     -X      Similar to -x but uses a file system internal snapshot on the
             file system to be dumped.

I would suggest you try -X.

        It's very complicated.  It's very cumbersome.  There's a
        lot of numbers involved with it.
