Q: Can I do anything about my neighbor's dog jumping the fence into our yard?

We have a pitbull and luckily they haven't been outside together, but we have watched our neighbor's dog jump into our fenced-in yard multiple times. What can we do (legally) other than ask the neighbor to watch their dogs?
