Can using a choke-chain on your puppy cause bloodshot eyes?

I would consider using more positive methods of training on a young puppy. If you're worried about bloodshot eyes as a result of choke chain corrections, you're probably correcting too severely anyway. Choke chains can cause damage to the dog's neck and windpipe if used incorrectly, as well as cause behavioral problems due to overcorrection. Maybe consider clicker training instead?
