Hello Kickstarters! We absolutely LOVE our dogs. As pet lovers, we are unable to help ourselves from taking tons pictures of them. Sometimes you just want to grab a shot of their good looking mug and share it with the world! 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. A selfie with your dog is nearly an impossible task.
To help solve these problems, I am proud to introduce the Pooch Selfie. Pooch Selfie is a smartphone attachment which helps pet owners take better pictures and selfies with their dogs.
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.
Turn the attention to your smartphone's front facing camera and use Pooch Selfie to capture the best selfies you'll ever take with your pup! Need some extra incentive? Simply remove the Pooch Selfie ball for a few squeaks and regain your dog's focus and then place back into the attachment for some awesome pics!
Each Pooch Selfie comes with a squeaking Pooch Selfie ball and custom cell phone attachment. Pooch Selfie is specifically designed to be used with iPhones and Galaxy's, however, works universally with most smartphones and tablets.
After a year of design, development, and prototyping, Pooch selfie is ready to go to market. We are now prepared to kick off a production tool and submit an order for mass quantities. This is where we need your help! We have qualified and selected highly reliable manufacturing partners to provide each component of Pooch Selfie. We feel very confident that our suppliers will deliver quality parts to schedule.
- Following the Kickstarter funding period, we will kick off tooling with our suppliers and proceed to first article inspection and production sample qualification. (Estimated Time - 3-4 weeks)
- Once parts have passed our review for quality assurance, we will initiate production orders for all components and establish a doc date to our San Diego, CA warehouse. (Estimated Time - 4 weeks)
- When all components are received, we will commence with final assembly and packaging and ship out immediately. (Estimated Time - 1-2 Weeks)
Risks and challenges
Bringing a project to life is always an exciting endeavor. Part of that excitement is solving issues that may arise as production gets under way. With 10 years of Mechanical Engineering, we have helped many products reach market and understand that no launch comes without its hiccups.
With a solid supply chain, we are confident that should any issue arise, we will solve these issues with little to no affect to our supporters. We strive on communication, and our project supporters will be notified at every stage until delivery.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
