I think the first thing to do would be to put the plants out of the puppy's reach, same as you would toddler-proof a house. As far as "deterrents", if you mean something like a spray, I've heard of people using a spray made of water and pepper sauce to keep cats away from plants, but I don't know if it works. Why don't you consult with a dog trainer - maybe a loud noise or something when the pup approaches a plant?
