I have a hard time walking my 9 month old American Akita. She is a puller. What can I do?

I have a hard time walking my Akita. I can not walk her with a leash on her collar. I must use a walking harness because she will literally choke herself to death if I don't. She still pulls a lot with the walking harness but at least I can walk her without her killing herself. It still makes it difficult to walk her. What can I do to solve this problem?

Look into loose leash training for walking her; this might make the difference.
