I just got through the puppy bad breath stage. Around 4-5 months they start losing teeth. AS they are losing teeth they bleed and the dry crusted old blood is what smells. have a good look inside the mouth. Are there any teeth that are really lose or dangling? If so pull them. This will help offset some of the odour. The pup needs to drink lots and chew on hard nylabones or on cloths that have been soaked with water and frozen. I found by 6-7 months the odor was gone. You cans also get a finger brush and toothpaste and massage the dogs gums.

Have you had them checked for worms? I've heard that can cause the bad breath.

An awful lot depends on how old your puppy is, what you are feeding her/him and giving him as treats, whether or not s/he is teething...
