If the dog was actively guarding the couch or bed - I'd kick them off and have them earn that priviledge back. In this case I don't see it as guarding, the dog was startled awake and reacted which is completely different IMO
OP - don't kick yourself, everyone makes mistakes and learns from them. I wouldn't act like I'm stepping on egg shells around the dog, but I would just simply respect him while he's sleeping that's all. Also it sounds like this was the only incident, it may have been a total fluke.
