Sexing puppies is actually really easy, especially compared to (for example) kittens.

The male puppy, at the risk of stating the obvious, will be the one that has a penis. In a young pup, the penis and prepuce will show as a bump on the lower tummy, whereas a female puppy's vulva is located directly between the hind legs.

If you need pictures to illustrate this, try these two from Drs. Foster and Smith, clearly showing the difference -

On a side note, if you don't know how to tell sex in puppies, maybe you should not be breeding your bitch!

I agree with Abby's answer and that if you are talking about your dog I hope that this dog will be spayed.
