There are a number of products out there, from grid patterns to cute creatures, that are designed to make babies look at your camera while you’re photographing them. Pooch Selfie is that same idea, except designed for dogs.

The product, which just hit Kickstarter, is a simple plastic accessory that lets you attach a tennis ball to the top of your smartphone, making it much easier to attract the attention of man’s best friend.

The product was developed by a company called Clever Dog Products that’s based in San Diego, California.

“As any dog owner will tell you, it is difficult to get your pet to sit still long enough for a picture, let alone catch them looking into the camera,” the company writes. “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.”

Here’s a short clip of the Pooch Selfie in action:

Each Pooch Selfie kit comes with a squeaky Pooch Selfie ball and a custom smartphone attachment that’ll be compatible with most mobile devices on the market. The ball can be easily taken off the mount and squeaked if you’d like to regain your dog’s attention.

Over 700 backers have already funded the project on Kickstarter, so the company has already more than doubled its original $7,000 funding goal. A pledge of $13 will get you one of the first units if/when it launches in December 2015.
