Q. My dog has just developed a cough, as though he has something stuck in his throat. Could this be kennel cough. He is fully vaccinated.

A. It could be kennel cough. The standard yearly vaccination does not include kennel cough in most vet clinics so you better check this one out.
Even if he was vaccinated for kennel cough he could still catch it, usually it will be a milder form though.
It could be other things as well, mainly heart related and for that reason I recommend going to the vet for peace of mind.
