Sitting next to a dog who drops one can be a pretty unpleasant experience. The gassy odour your dog can produce can be at times surprising, but most of the time not in a good way yet always guaranteed to send your sense of smell into overdrive feeling as though all your nasal hairs have all been wiped out by their sulphur stench. 

In most cases, even if you are struggling to breathe, remember your dog’s windy pops is harmless. However, excessive back end blow outs can potentially mean an underlying health condition. 

The fight against canine flatulence isn’t hopeless!  There are solutions that will cut down on all the trumpet noises and stink clouds.  Recognising what makes your pooch do poisonous puffs is important and there are several factors that can lead to stinky dog farts. 

What your dog eats can play a huge role in how their digestive tract functions. Things like change in diet or foods difficult to digest in addition to milk products, spices or foods high in fibre.  Bacterial fermentation of nutrients, as in humans does sometimes result in the noxious gases that escape from time to time. 

Most rump roaring in dogs comes simply from them swallowing too much air through gobbling their food too quickly. 

Hydrogen sulfide is behind the stink in stinky dog farts, so any treats containing charcoal, Yucca schidigera, and zinc acetate will produce less-stinky farts. 

Let’s not forget that there are just some dogs out there who are more prone to farting.

Some are champion level farters!

Top 10 Dogs who have the absolute worst farts


This breed also has a secret weapon—a lethal fart that will clear a room faster than any bark or growl ever could.

Boston Terrier

With its black and white tuxedo-like markings just like James Bond, the Boston has a secret—a smelly little secret. It farts…a lot.


Beagles fart badly... enough said!

American Pit Bull Terrier

The Pitbull Terrier has an often-unfounded reputation as being one of the most aggressive and dangerous dog breeds around. But the truth is, Pit Bulls pose a danger to other animals and people only when they fart…they can be silent but deadly.


The original “atomic dog,” the Mastiff brings the thunder wherever it goes, and sometimes that thunder comes in the form of a fart that has the potential to level buildings.

Yorkshire Terrier

Yorkshire Terriers are cute, petite, and oh so sweet, but these precious pups produce stink bombs that are downright lethal.


Bulldogs of all types fart a lot because they have trouble digesting many foods. They also enjoy food so much that they find it hard to pace themselves when eating. Their flat, brachycephalic faces force them to take in too much air while eating.


Pugs are arguably the gassiest of the small dog breeds, consistently producing some of the most putrid poots known to man—or dog. Pugs not only pass gas frequently, but forcefully, sometimes startling themselves with their own farts.


No one for knows for certain how the Boxer got its name, but we’re betting that it had something to do with the fact that the Boxer’s butt bombs will KNOCK. YOU. OUT.
