Until your dog walks reliably on a loose lead, even under difficult circumstances, a harness is a safer option than a collar. Personally I would never use a choke chain on a small breed dog. IMO, if they need it, they are not ready to be walking on a collar outside of a controlled environment. I prefer no-pull harnesses, where the leash attaches to the chest rather than those where the leash attaches to the back. Those that attach in back encourage a dog to pull.
