NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER use a choke!!! If you want something like that use a pinch or a prong. Studies show that before the dog responds to the pressure from a choke it can seriously hurt thier trachea or even collapse it! Some dogs just dont stop pulling until they have no choice and thats where it gets dangerous. Pinches/Prongs give and immediate signal by pinching the skin which is more effective and faster that pressure and choking. Please for the sake of the dog don't use chokes :(

I've never tried a martingale, but i have heard good things about them.
If that still doesn't work try a head collar, The gentle leader harness has worked beautifully on my bp
