I think I caught that Sasha is a puppy? I wouldn't worry too much about this right now. It hasn't been a week. You might want to start waiting for eye contact before you reward the sit or only rewarding it in certain circumstances. If you do reward it, be sure to name it. That's the way I like to train many behaviors - wait until it is volunteered, name it and reward it. You could continue to reward this but start naming and rewarding other behaviors, too. Down, for instance. However, keep in mind that young puppies have limited retention ability - with that in mind, I' be inclined to keep naming and rewarding the behavior(sit). Perhaps not every time it is offered, but frequently.
I'm sure you'll get other opinions on this. It's been 9 years since I had a puppy!
