Feline new year resolutions should be simple. What does a pet human need? It needs more training and some careful encouragement for good behaviour. A well trained human is a happy human! The same goes for Jake, your canine companion.
But let's be clear. It easier to train a human if it doesn't know it is being trained. So I suggest that you do not let your human discover what your resolution is. Merely put your resolution into practice from January 1 onwards. The ideal pet human is well behaved and obedient without realising that this behaviour has been trained into it.
Be firm. Be consistent. Be kind. These are the principles of training an inferior species.
