Woolfie: Take a Perfect Selfie with Your Dog

I love my dog, but getting her to sit still for a photo is tricky, let alone for a selfie with both of us in the picture. There's just too much to coordinate. The folks at Model Citizen had the same idea, but they did something about it! They created the Woofie ($9.50). It's not a selfie-stick, but rather a snap-on attachment for your phone.The idea is to insert a dog treat in the top of the device so it gets your dog's attention. And it works!

The Woofie accommodates a variety of treats such as bully sticks or bones and a variety of phones. The website lists pink and gray colors for the Woofie; but right now, only Glamour Green is available to purchase, at the reasonable price of under $10. Plus the company donates a percentage of sales to its local animal shelters. Just be sure to reward your dog after the photo shoot, so it doesn't feel teased!
