Not be an ass, but choke chains are dangerous and not recommended by any vets. However, a gentle leader is a good device! Perfect for training too!

yeah, i second this! though even the gentle leader is problematic. the SPCA sells the perfect harness. not an ass at all to point this out :)

Choke collars should be used as a last result. I'm a bit suspicious of a trainer who recommends those first. It's entirely possible to teach a dog to heel and come without one.
