|Cassidy's Mom||The Silky Leash method is awesome! It basically retrains the oppositional reflex to pull into the collar to a new response to relieve leash pressure by moving in that direction. I also used #2 - rewarding for eye contact, #3 - rewarding for the sweet spot, and #4 - the canine cha-cha to train Halo to walk on leash, which she does beautifully. I actually have some comments on that page about using Silky Leash with Keefer and Halo.|

NILIF for sure. There's also tons of behavior and training info on Dogstar Daily: Dog Training Digital Textbook | Dog Star Daily

Would they be willing to take an obedience class with this dog? When I adopted Keeta, she was overwhelming and out-of-control, I was way over my head with her. It was going to classes that turned things around with me (for both of us).
I would also suggest that they use a prong for walking and for keeping the pup from jumping on people.

IF they are into reading/researching, here are a few of my bookmarked suggestions, but pinpointing a specific resource isn't going to be the magical link.
They need to get with a good trainer(you?), IMO as well as doing it on their own.
