Getting your dog to sit still can be a nightmare, but Pooch Selfie will trick them into posing for the perfect pic.

Pooch Selfie is a phone accessory like no other. It’s a tennis ball that attaches to the top of your phone, sure to get your dog’s attention long enough for a perfect portrait.

Sure, you’re tricking them, but the ball does detach from the plastic fastener, so it’s not 100 per cent mean. Just a tiny bit manipulative.

This isn’t a normal ball, either. It also squeaks, giving it an extra hit of doggie-diverting power

Pooch Selfie just slots onto the top of your phone, so can naturally be used whether you’re just looking for a doggie snap or actually want a full-on front camera canine selfie with you in the pic too. Just make sure he doesn’t lunge for the ball before you hit the shutter button.

Maker Clever Dog Products says Pooch Selfie has been designed with iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones in mind, however it should also work with just about any phone or tablet. The only thing to worry about is whether Pooch Selfie sits over your camera lens: that won’t work.

Simplicity is the order of the day here, and it sounds like Pooch Selfie really will work. It also doesn’t cost too much. Out for crowd-funding support right now, Early Bird Kickstarter deals started at just $7, but they’ve all gone.

You can get hold of a Pooch Selfie right now on Kickstarter for just $13. Still a bargain for the ultimate dog portrait, don’t you think?
