Your dog's behavior is not because of his deafness. This behavior is not uncommon for the breed, and it is also not uncommon in a dog that's been indulged, but it is not related to his deafness.

You say you've tried training - what have you done? You say you punished him when he tried to bite - what did you do? Why is he still sleeping on your bed?
