If you're trying to get a dog to hold sit, hover your hand right above so, if he moves, he'll hit your hand and self correct or you can gently push him down again. Similarly, when trying to get a dog off the bed, put your arm under him and gently lift. This will start to be uncomfortable and can be all the additional encouragement your pup needs to hop off on his own. No matter the correction you choose, the goal is helping him in the right direction not doing it all on your own.
