|A fence could actually cause more problems. Several years ago my parents (who live out in the country, have 17 acres) had problems with the people he bought the land from. They kept coming onto the property, allowed their cows and dogs to come onto the land, fished in the pond, and probably hunted too (my dad hates hunting). The land was already partially fenced in, so he went ahead and fenced in the rest facing the problem neighbor. The problem with the cows stopped, but the neighbors just started cutting the fence, and while they were gone on a trip, their sheds were shot up & things stolen. So, yeah, things escalated. The police could not prove who stole the things. My dad did go over there and give them a piece of his mind regarding the fence cutting though. We no longer have any problems with them.
My parents have no trespassing signs posted all along the edges of their property, and took pictures of the signs. You could try that, and document any time you see your neighbor and/or his dogs on your property. Take pictures/video, as well as write down the time and date.
