Silky leash is just a different approach, but has the same end result. Loose lead training usually refers to capturing the dog when it's next to you with a clicker (at least to me), but can be used to refer to any method that teaches loose lead walking.
Personally I prefer the silky leash method, but they both work just as well. (as far as I know anyway)
