You love your dog, but getting him to take the perfect picture is often harder than making sure he doesn't drink out of the toilet.

Until now.

San Diego-based entrepreneur Jason Hernandez has created the Pooch Selfie, which is a "smartphone attachment which helps pet owners take better pictures and selfies with their dogs!"

Clever Dog Products, which is manufacturing the new invention, explains why the Pooch Selfie is a necessity:

A selfie with your dog is nearly an impossible task. Pooch Selfie takes advantage of a dog’s natural draw and focus to a tennis ball and uses this focus to hold their gaze as you snap away that perfect portrait picture."

The Pooch Selfie is pretty darned simple, too. It's a clip with a tennis ball on it that attaches to most smartphone devices, so your pet will look at the ball while you snap away and put an end to those awful pictures where Fido looks away at a Frisbee just as you take it.

The Pooch Selfie has a Kickstarter page, which has brought in more than three times the amount of the $7,000 it aimed to raise.
