Is the easement already there or is it being created?
If there is an easement on foot it has to be wide enough to take a wheelbarrow. A rather odd measurement which goes back hundreds of years but still applies today.
If you could give us the background detail on what the problem is that would be useful in answering further.
Doors in houses vary between 30 inches wide and 36 inches wide. A wheelbarrow will go through either of them.
Whereas you cannot take any action against the neighbour in respect of a cat, you can in respect of a dog. They are expected to keep the dog under control and to stop it trespassing in exactly the same way that they are not supposed to trespass.
You could take into court (after warning them), for an injunction to make them stop the dog running over the rest of your land. You could ask the court to award the costs of the application against them.
However if you don’t want to be confrontational, the fence might be a more softly softly approach. I assume that they don’t have any right to go over the rest of the area which you are fencing off.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
