Is your dog pupular on Instagram? Imagine if Fido could take the selfies himself... Wait, is that possible? Yes...yes it is. These simple steps will make your pooch the #SelfieKing or #SelfieQueen. Here's how.
1. Secure the phone

Place your phone, iPad or other device into a ziplock bag. Put some peanut butter on the outside of the bag over the screen.
2. Teach a command

Teach your dog "touch" or a similar command by showing the pooch the peanut butter-y goodness. Once your dog touches it, say the command and give treats and lovin'.
3. Keep practicing
Just like with shake, sit and roll, this command will take some time. Work on it until your pup understands.
4. Take away the peanut butter
Once your pooch understands the command, you can take the phone out of the ziplock and remove the peanut butter. Keep giving treats and ruv when your pup licks or nosies the phone.
5. Bring up your camera
Try the Big Camera Button app
to turn your whole screen into a shutter button. Make sure the camera is front facing (in optimal selfie mode).
6. Hold the phone up

Now when your pup does his or her new trick, the phone takes the selfie! You might need to help your pooch choose a filter, though.

I don't know if I should go with XX-Pro or Valencia...
