Default is it okay to do this

I have such a small crappy yard now but my dog really loves to do this every day, the space is small she doesnt care she loves it the most her fave thing to do.

I dont wanna do it in public because I don't wanna get in trouble unless we are far out. Is it okay on the joints? my dog is 4.

lol i didnt see the ball in her mouth in the first video. why wouldnt it be ok? its not like she's running full speed on a hard surface. that doesnt look like it's really going to tire her out though. i too have a small yard and i never play fetch in it. i'd rather play in the front yard and throw it into my neighbors yard

why would you get in trouble for playing fetch in public?

Imo looks OK, if it were me I wouldn't encourage full speed towards the fence which will require him to put on the brakes quickly. Fence running like this (where there is speed and sudden stops) can be detriment to joints, when Lola was diagnosed with HD, we were advised by an expert to cease all high speed runs where she is required to stop suddenly. However, your dog looks fine, he is not running with top speed and stopping suddenly.
