We're getting a GSD puppy this week and our previous GSD was unfortunately very aggressive to other dogs and fearful due to a traumatizing childhood. Now I came into his life roughly 7-8 years in and he had a choke chain because of how boisterous he was when going for walks, so I understand why it was used.

Now I don't want to use a Choke Chain since this new dog is from a seemingly established breeder, a very nice temperament along with being purely German (Which I was told leads to better temperament.) He seems like a very cool pup so I don't see why we'd need it, and I want to encourage my family members to use an alternative, either harness or a leather walking collar perhaps (Because they don't use collars in the house, which I like.)

Can anyone offer advice to what type of leash we should get for the pup and if the Choke Chain would indeed be a bad idea (Or a good idea!)
