Why does the dirt stink?

My backyard stinks like a stable. Not all the time, but when we have dry, hot weather (as we do this week). What to do?

The previous owners had two large dogs, and they just moved out a few months ago. I thought we cleaned up everything the dogs left behind, but maybe they buried something... or the smell just sunk in... or maybe it's not dog-related at all. The smelly area, by the kitchen door, is sparse grass, dandelions, and dusty dirt.
What can I do to get rid of the smell? The cheaper and easier, the better. I'm not interested in landscaping this area, just being able to leave the door open without gagging.
