My puppy barks at night

It has gotten to a point where my mom is crying because she can't get enough sleep. What do I do in this situation? He wakes us up by barking, then jumps on the couch and bites her! When I put him on my bed, he starts biting me! ( we are so stressed out. Why is he so hyper? I thought havanese were apartment dogs!

my guess is that you've trained him to bark. I can give you some articles, but if it is as bad as you say, I would recommend a trainer, before things get out of hand. Does this sound like an option.?

A tired dog is a good dog, wear him out during the early evening. he might have to go potty when barking at night.

He is 5 months old and he goes potty on the pad. He barks when he needs to get down from my bed and go potty, but he also barks for no reason...

Well, to solve the barking to get down from your bed, I suggest you invest in pet stairs and possibly a night light to help him see. There's always some reason your pup barks - attention being one of them. A trainer, like Dave said, can help you identify his reasons as they are much more skilled in recognizing dog's signals.

Wish I had the time and money. Maybe when he grows up he will stop the non sense

Maybe. maybe not. If you cant invest the time or the money, maybe you shouldn't have a dog.
