You’re lucky enough to see a group of corgis; it’s such a great site. Maybe it’s just in a picture. But how do you refer to them, collectively? What is the term to use? Well, you have a few options – here are the ones to know.
So, what is a group of corgis called? A group of corgis is typically known as a pack, a pocket, a wiggle, or a rowdy. Other terms include corgi (although instead pronounced corg-eye), a cackle, or even a murder.
The last one is a bit dark, so you likely won’t want to use that.
But still, you have options.
But you might want to stick to more familiar ones, though.
At least if you want to be understood!
But why are these terms used? Let’s find out!
Reasons Behind The Group Corgi Names
A group of animals often acquire names in reference to their actions, behavior, or unique traits.
If we look at the terms more closely, we can soon see why they are used with this particular breed:
- Pack – used to describe a group of dogs, in general. This has been passed down from wolves; who live in groups known as packs.
- Pocket – This likely derives from the small fold or slit found in some breeds of dogs (also known as a Henry’s pocket). Corgis are one such breed that has it. Although the term pocket could also be in reference to the the short stature of corgis and their size in general. Pockets are generally small.
- Wiggle – in reference to the way they move, particularly when running,
- Rowdy – often used to describe a group of five corgis or more. At such a time, it would likely get a little rowdy (boisterous behaviour).
And that is all I have for you today.
Personally, I am a fan of pack, pocket, wiggle, or rowdy.
They are the terms to generally use.
But there is no reason you could not make one up.
Focus on their features, unique traits, and characteristics – just as you will see in some of those pre-established terms.
Just don’t be surprised if you need to explain what you are talking about if you ever use it in a sentence, though.
