The "selfie" craze is officially unavoidable. Even our pets are jumping on the bandwagon! Here are some top tips from our favourite furry friends for how to capture the perfect selfie.

This is an unflattering angle for everyone. A rookie mistake!

7. Use props so people think you are doing something ridiculously fun.

8. If you feel silly taking photos of yourself, ease into it with a friend.

But, choose your partner carefully. One of you will inevitably end up looking worse than the other.

If you are too cool for the selfie, then this is definitely the approach for you.
