I have heard that tennis balls are bad for your dogs teeth so I asked my dog's vet, and he said basically what I have read. The fussy outer layer of tennis balls can lead to wear of your dogs teeth. Also if your dog chews the tennis ball into pieces and swallows these small bits of ball it could cause an obstruction. Their are many safer dog designed balls at any pet store. If your like me, you most likely will continue to use tennis balls throw them away when cracked so the dog doesn't eat any pieces. If your dog is more interested in chewing the fuss then playing catch take the balls away unless you are monitoring the situation.
