Plzz help and tell at which age would he stop doing that.

Answer
First, if you puppy is really only 35 days old, it is too young to be away from his mother and littermates. You are working from a huge disadvantage already. Puppies should not be separated from their family until they are least 7 weeks old.

Get a crate for your dog. Put it next to the side of the bed you sleep on, close enough that you can put your hand next to it so the puppy knows you are there. You must ignore all whining and crying if you don't want him on the bed with you. You could also put a blanket or towel over the crate.

The crate is also the solution for housetraining the dog. He should be in his crate whenever you are not directly supervising him. Take him out every 20 minutes when he is awake and immediately after he wakes up from a nap. You can also teach him to ring a bell to tell you he has to go outside.  Here's a good article:  http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/virtual-pet-behaviorist/dog-behavior/teaching-your
