That part just cant be repeated enough.

Even if the other behavioral elements were not going on, simply holding onto the jesses and bringing the food in from above will prevent footing while handing tidbits.

There is a thousand ways to skin a cat, as the saying goes though. While Jim's trick is a good one, its just one among many for giving tidbits. Its my usual one, but sometimes I get lazy or impatient and use others.
