If you notice your dog coughing after pulling a leash and they don’t exhibit symptoms that indicate a need for a vet as soon as possible, you should begin using a padded harness that doesn’t put any pressure on the dog’s neck area rather than the standard collar you were using previously. If your dog continues to cough even after switching to a harness that doesn’t put pressure on the neck, you should see your vet so that they can examine the extent of the damage.

If you're using a collar rather than a harness, you may want to look up "tracheal collapse"and switch to a harness.

Better training would help, either a wider collar or a harness until he's leash trained to not pull into the leash.

First you stop the pulling. Then there won't be any choking & hacking. You can google "stop dog from pulling" to get some ideas. You can change the collar to a head collar, that may help.
If you put him through Basic Obedience he wouldn't be pulling. He would be an obedient dog. It's all online, in bunches of training books & group classes. It is just the 7 basic commands any dog should know.
