Concern for my dog.

I have a 10 month old Staffy x who loves to play out in the garden. Over the last few weeks our neighbours children, one around 6 yrs and the other around 3 yrs have been playing out every day in their garden. I have no issue with this and understand that children will be children at times. My issue is that the oldest child is throwing balls, paintbrushes, lolly sticks, chalk and various small plastic toys over our fence. At first we just threw them back over but we are finding this has began to be a daily occurrence. We have to check our garden before we can let the dog out. I had a word with the father and asked politely if he would have a word as we were worried what might happen if our dog chewed any of any of these plastic toys, which he has, and swallowed them causing him an injury. The father said he had already told them about throwing things over but would have a word. Since then it has been one thing after another being thrown over and I have since asked again for them to stop. I have now stopped throwing things back and have a nice collection building up. If my dog does swallow anything and ends up at the vets can I claim any vets fees from my neighbour?
