I would do it every two-three weeks. Too often will wash out the oils the dogs need for a nice shiny coat.
Depending on the time of year and temperature. Or if it is an indoor or outdoor dog. I had a Peekapoo puppy(her hair was like silk, softer than human hair) I bathed every night because she slept with me under the blankets and it was not from my encouragement, I had never slept with a dog or even had a dog on my bed much less in it. I dried her real good and then she was right under the blankets with me with her belly right up against my back, it was so sweet I took the discomfort and it never hurt her. Dogs that go outside though I do agree need what God has given them to repel water and keep dry and warm.
I think, roughly two or three times a month. However if they get mucky, wash them, but without puppy shampoo, as too much of this will wash the oils out of their fur.
You don't want to bathe puppies very often. 2-3 weeks is way too often for puppies and adult dogs. You want it to be a bare minimum of one mont (4 weeks). Puppies should be bathed even further a part.
try to only give your puppy a bath when its abuslty nessary my vet told me to much bathing can damage there delicate skin and make it dry and itchy so only bath him or her when its realy needed
