Default Help with older puppy and new "owner"

So my sister and her family have taken temporary custody of an 8 month old GSD. Her owner is overseas with the military.

The dog is sweet, no real temperament issues.... but out of control. Over sofas and baby gates, clueless about walking on leashes, literally doesn't know sit.

So I am looking to send her some good links and info on training and controlling this rowdy house guest, from a pet dog perspective, 1st time dog owner.
I prefer See, Mark And Reward type Training.... and sister says she is not comfortable with yank and crank.
There are three grade school children. and they also have a toy poodle in residence (trained before acquired) who is good with big dogs, but not impressed by this urchin in his house.
