They certainly can serve their purpose, but when used the dog really should remain on a short lead the entire time so as to never be able to charge off and get snapped back.
If more control is needed and Loki still can't wear a harness, look into purchasing a martingale collar and forming a "basket" with the leash. We do this at the shelter all the time -- lots of control, but there is no pressure on the shoulder.
I tried to find an example online but failed. Basically the leash is attached to the collar. You hold the collar with the leash attachment at the top and then wrap the leash around the dog's girth and then up through the loop in the martingale collar. Instant no-pull harness with zero pressure on the shoulders. Works a treat.
