How old is he? If he's a puppy, he just needs to be taught manners consistently. If he's older, its a little different.
he is like 8 or 9 months now

he was not my dog he is my mothers but her training is hitting him for everything and i disagree with that thats why im trying to learn as much as i can from this forum

What happens when you put a chew toy in his mouth when he tries to bite?

He wants to play with you....he wants your attention and the only way he knows how to do that is by biting you. Put him to work...do some basic obedience. Show him that a polite sit or a down will always get your time and attention and he gets rewarded with a treat, a toy, a game of tug, etc.

My dogs get plenty of exercise throughout the day, but even after lots of long walks and tons of play time, I find that with puppies sometimes it's still a challenge to get them to settle down at bed time.

What I've always done is taken the puppy right before bedtime and had some serious play time. Fetch usually works well for me. Play with them until they start getting tired, and then put them in the crate (or wherever you want them to sleep) and say: it's time for bed! or whatever you want to use (and after a while your dog will know what that means and when you say it they will go to bed!).

Now, the trick is to make sure your dog is getting enough exercise throughout the day. If not, this may not work as well for you.

I've never had problems getting my dogs to sleep after I started doing this. The only time my current puppy will whine at night is if she needs to go to the bathroom, and then when I bring her back inside and put her in the crate, she goes right back to sleep.

You might want to look into crating your dog at night, or find somewhere else for the puppy to sleep. Your dog may not be ready to sleep in the bed with you yet (too tempting to play with your hair, nip your nose, etc.).

Good luck! Things will get better, all you need is a little patience and determination.

The problem here is that the only one home during the day has no time for doggy care as she works nights. And you say you do work at night and I guess have other things to do during the day..?

so maybe you need a dog-sitter for during the day, or give the dog to someone with appropriate resources for a dog during the day.

And by the way, releasing him from the tether when he is crying is only reinforcing the crying behavior.

Keep chew toys stuffed with kibble around to occupy his time rather than teething/mouthing on your forearm. Take him outside and run him, or play catch. Hopefully you have a fenced in yard to play in. This will at least help a little bit.

Oh yea, you could also choose to NOT LET THE DOG ON THE BED... just a suggestion.
