Teething.

Regardless of a puppy's world of discovery missions, Teething is the most common cause of bad breath in puppies.

Teething smells are sometimes "fishy" or "rotten." The entire process lasts for about 4 weeks, so if you can keep your nose pointed away from your pup's mouth, you'lll be fine.

Well, not usually. Most training professionals strongly recommend against adopting two pups at the same time.

Just because you have two kids and they both want their own puppy doesn't mean you should get two pups.

You stand the best chance of raising well-trained and -socialized puppies one at a time.

For one thing, they possess up to 300 million olfactory receptors in their noses, compared to about six million in us.

And the part of a dog's brain that is devoted to analyzing smells is, proportionally speaking, 40 times greater than ours.

Dogs' noses also function quite differently than our own.
