I've never had a dog before. What's up with the gas? Is it just trial and error on the food to get it to stop? Is there something extra to feed that will help? Let the fart jokes begin. But please give me hope that this isn't a permanent feature of our beloved pet.

I have never had one that did not have gas. Some foods are more likely to be a problem than others. It will be trial and error; but keep in mind that switching foods frequently (or before they normalize) will aggrevate the problem. Ease them into a new food and give it a few weeks. If results are not there, try again.
"people food" (typically richer foods) has usually given my dogs more gas than there dry dog foods. However, I think the dry foods are less healthy. Also some breeds are more problematic than others. My Chow/Golden seldom had an issue. My Catahoulas could clear a room. All fed the same diet.
Without subsidies, chem-ag food costs four times more than organic. Or this tiny ad:
