Why would you want to choke your Best Friend

Choke chains have been scientifically proven to cause injured ocular blood vessels, tracheal and oesophageal damage, severely sprained necks, cases of fainting, asphyxiation, transient foreleg paralysis, laryngeal nerve paralysis and hind leg ataxia. Also there is no way to control how much the choke chain tightens, so it's possible to choke or strangle your dog. A choke chain may get caught while a dog is playing or running around, which may result in injury or death. Prolonged use of choke chains may cause injury, even if applied correctly.
