Try the code of OpenCat. It only requires regular Arduino Uno for motion.

The robot features ultrasonic sensors for obstacle detection, bluetooth communication for controls, and gyroscope for orientations. The possible functionalities of quadruped robots are similar and includes :
  • surveillance
  • map of environment
  • sense and avoid obstacles
  • climb stairs
  • payload transportation
  • movement in rough terrains
  • higher agility and speed
