Pacing is much more common in dogs that lack balance especially when they are tired. It is seen quite often in obedience during heeling even in balanced dogs when the handler is moving too slowly.
In horses the amble is most often considered a four beat gait, faster than the walk, similar to the pace (which is a two beat gait). Another name I have heard it called is the stepping pace.
