A bit about Pooch Selfies

Pooch Selfies was founded by Jason Hernandez.

The idea of an accessory to capture a pet's attention was initially a fun idea, but Mr. Hernandez thought that it could be marketable.

So, he created a Kickstarter account to crowd fund his idea.

Mr. Hernandez raised $39,000 through crowd funding, and was thus able to start Pooch Selfies.

Jason Hernandez's vision

"It seems today we humanize our pets more and more. They are our fur children, I know mine are. As they are our fur-kids, it makes sense that we want to create the same kinds of memories we do with other people," Mr. Hernandez said.
