The pattern of movement of animals during (terrestrial) locomotion.
Gaits used by cats and dogs include the walk, the amble, the pace, the trot, the canter and the gallop.
Some dog breed standards describe those gaits that are desirable and those that are not. The breed standards of cats do not refer to gaits. However, terms that are applied to dogs are equally applicable to cats.
