Lab during 1st week.....Bad smell

I have 8 week old Lab puppy. His mouth smells very bad....i checked his mouth ,it seems all clean- No dark spot...all teeth looks super white but it still has bad smell..He has his chew toys to remove plaque or tarter.... I asked breeder and breeder advised against using any of toothbrush or toothpaste....Breeder just recommended giving beef bone to clean but its unbearable.... I am reading materials online but there are behemoth of information on pet care with all different opinions.

What you guys use to clean dog mouth? Is toothpaste is really bad for dog health?
Any recommendation?

At 8 weeks old, plaque and tarter shouldn't have had a chance to even start yet. But I'm no vet. I'd advise taking him in and mentioning it to your vet. Do you have any shots or visits scheduled?

I would just put up with it for now, and ask your vet. Unless someone in here comes up with a great idea.
