I think some dogs take it to the frustrating level. I have a big (size of two basketballs maybe?) hard plastic blue ball and my apbt is insane with it. By the time I drag her away from it she has usually bitten her tongue, scratched her bully running it through bushes, and her eyebrows and muzzle are red. But it is very good excercise for her. She had the teaser ball for years before she finally broke it. I can not leave her unattended with these toys as she will not stop but they are amazingly durable. That big blue ball is the toughest thing ever, but strictly an outside toy.
My gsd boys love the teaser ball, but do not get frustrated/obsessed with it. I've seen them try to stick their legs down through the holes to get the ball out haha. Once, and I don't know how, they did get the ball out.
We cannot have the softer plastic ones in the house. My apbt loves them and has them ripped apart in 5 minutes.
I highly reccomend the jolly balls though, and I think with most dogs they are fine to leave with unattended. So long as the dog will walk away from the toy eventually.
