There are times that your dog will ignore your sit command because he is very distracted or because you do not have a treat. When this happens, gradually pull up on the leash or collar until your dog feels discomfort but his front feet are still firmly on the ground. Keep the tension on until your dog sits. Do not jerk and release. The second your dog starts to sit, release the tension.

Your dog may take quite a long time to sit the first time you try it because he will not understand what to do to make the discomfort go away. Keep repeating the sit command in a calm voice. Be persistent (have I said this before?). Eventually it will take less tension and less time to get a sit, until you will only have to touch the collar. Remember to keep praising and rewarding with treats! (I think I've said this before, too.)
