Do I get a second chance on an invisible fence?

I set up an invisible fence, trained my dog according to instructions, and all was good for six weeks. The she decided she'll take the zap in exchange for freedom. Can I ever retrain her?

Once a dog realizes the pros and cons of escape through an invisible fence, and decides the pros win, is it possible to ever get her to respect the barrier again?
The battery is new and the leads are definitely touching her neck.
We have tripled the flags along the border she always breaches, to remind her what's there.
The zap field is as wide as we can make it given our yard configuration.
She is extremely respectful of the fence when we're in the yard with her. When we turn our back, if she can see her pal dog two houses over, she'll take off.
