hamster balls...good or bad?

Hey guys, if I were to get a large hamster ball, would it be safe to let a hedgie roll around in one? And if so, would it still be dangerous to have a hedgie in the ball around a dog? :D

- bad ventilation -> constant inhaling poop fumes
- nails can get caught in the slits and get ripped off
- dog + ball = hedgie soccer -> very traumatized if not severely injured hedgie

And...be careful if you're going to introduce dog and hedgie, as one bite, one trample is enough to kill the hedgie from external and/or internal injuries.

Playpen where the dog can't get at the hedgie is much safer.
