What kind of verbs are used, for the different ways a dog walks?

For instance, in the case of a horse, it could be trotar or galopar.

What possibilities exist for a dog?

  • Are there words for it in English?

  • @Rodrigo - The only one I can think of is lope (seems to work even better for wolves). I guess a wolf could also slink into the shadows. A dog who feels unwanted might skulk. Jun 25, 2018 at 5:21

There's no specific verb, you can go either with andar or caminar, even correr or trotar if it is running


No, for dogs there is not an specific word, you can just use "caminar" that applies to horses too, "galopar" it's just a specific style.
