My dog jumps, barks and bites me every time i leave home
Every time i leave home, my dog comes running to me, jump against me, barking, and biting me (without hurting me). Then when i close the door, i goes running to my parents and does the same thing. I say sit and stay but he doesnt attend the order. After 3 minutes, e begins whining...and stops after 2 minutes. Then everything becomes ok. I cannot pass by this every time i leave...it's stressing. How can i prevent him from doing this ? Please help me

Crating him before you leave would help.
You can make him used to the idea of a crate by leaving it open when it's not in use, feeding him in there, puting his water dish in there, tossing toys in there during playtime, etc. Dogs actually like the idea of a small den-like area, it's being contained in one and when they'd rather be doing something else that they don't particularly like.
Also, the crate should be large enough for him to sit, lie down, and stand comfortably, but shouldn't be any bigger than that. (If it is, you can put a cooler or something in the back.) This will help prevent him using one side as a bathroom. Dogs don't like to soil their eating or sleeping areas.
Also, if it's a puppy, then you shouldn't leave him in there for very long.
