I practiced it as a kid...

100% in agreement.
However, for descending stairs, this method is not quite as efficient or stylish and attempting to race your dog will result in disaster and pain and possibly being bitten on your clumsy hand.

You've just reminded me of something that I'd managed to lock deep down in my subconscious.
