Gas like that usually indicates some type of gastric or digestive imbalance. It can be from poor quality food, food intolerances or if it's something that happens all of a sudden or just once in a great while, it can be a parasite, intestinal bug or that he just ate something that didn't agree with him.

If you think his food could be upgraded, then perhaps look into a higher quality food. Brands like Wellness, Innova, Eagle Pack and Orijen are good to try. Transitioning should be done over a period of a week or two, a little bit at a time and you should see an improvement (if that is what the issue is, food) within a few weeks.

If you think it's something else, or if it's accompanied by diarrhea or vomiting, then maybe take him to the vet and make sure he's ok.

Doberman pinscher with gas - sounds like it could be a yeast problem. The Belly can get too much yeast bacteria overgrowth:

Make sure there is no soy in the dogfood, soy gives my girls wicked gas. Could be other additives as well, some dogfoods use strange chemicals to mimic results of what should be nutrients in the mix. Read the ingredients on your dogfood bag and Google them. I found one type of food that used a chemical that actually could erode a dogs esophagus and/or cause stomach ulcers.
Oughtta be a law against it, but i guess there isn't . Number one suspect for any stomach upset, check the ingredient label and Google what you don't know.
