Puppy breath can be caused by numerous things, but I have found it comes with teething. As the puppys teeth loosen up, there will be some decay until they pop out. After teething, the non offensive odor should return. In the meantime, this is the perfect time to start training your puppy to accept dental cleanings. You can do this by using a dog friendly toothpaste. I recommend Nylabone. Start by doing finger cleanings, since the puppy will be more than happy to nibble on those. Then as they get used to the sensation, you can move on to a smaller toothbrush. Remember to brush gently and not too deep. This should help remedy the problem and prostpone future smells. Hope that helps =)

Puppy breath is short-lived, and, yes, it's usually gone by the time they're 10-12 weeks old. If your dog has odiferous breath as a young adult or an adult it's always best to see a vet and find out why.
