The easiest method is to gently lift the tail up and count the openings - a male has one opening (the anus) and a female has two openings (the anus and the vulva).

You can also look to see which puppies have a penis running along the belly, but this is more difficult since newborn puppies all have a navel (from where the puppy attached to the placenta) that mimics the penis.
