What could your dog love more than a tennis ball
If you have a larger breed dog, such as a German Shepherd, you can easily see that they can wrap their entire mouths around a tennis ball and could possibly choke. As they could with many other smaller plastic and rubber balls sold as dog toys. This typically happens when the ball gets lodged in the back of the throat where it cannot be removed by the owner.

Don’t Play Fetch With These Objects
The choking cases that have come through my emergency practice are dogs that have either small, hard plastic balls or dense rubber SuperBall-type balls lodged in their throats. These balls cannot be compressed like a tennis ball, making them more likely to get stuck. For that reason, I absolutely discourage the use of those balls.
I would also not recommend using sticks. Sticks can puncture the esophagus or the mouth. Bits of wood from the stick can also be swallowed and cause a foreign body obstruction. Here are the most important basic safety rules for ball play:
