Dog Walker

The Dog Walker strain is an indica-dominant cross between the Albert Walker OG and Chemdawg 91 strains. Sometimes called Dog Walker OG, its name comes from the pungent scent that it gives off when burnt, which is something like the skunky smell of a wet dog with an earthy undertone.

While that might not seem very appealing, regular users say that it becomes an acquired taste and that its effects are quite balanced. It is a notably potent strain of cannabis, which means that people often experience more of an effect than expected, and it may not be suitable for first-time users.

Dog Walker has been described as having cerebral and calming effects that help improve focus. This suggests that Dog Walker OG may be useful for managing anxiety, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and chronic fatigue syndrome.
