Do underground fences work well with male, neutered labs?
Yes they do work, but only if you get a professional one, have it installed, and let them train your dog.
Most people that have horror stories from this type of fencing are only familiar with the junk that is sold at Pet Smart.
I am a dealer for the Pet Stop Brand and I have never had a problem with containment of any breed dog. We have a specially designed training layout that we follow to TRAIN the dogs to the system instead of shocking the crap out of the dog and making them scared of the fence.

Instead of doing everything to stop the dogs from jumping the fence try getting to the root or the problem. Why are your dogs jumping the fence? That's the question you need to ask yourself. I will try to help you. They aren't escaping because they're lonely as they have each other. However there could be a bigger problem, what kind of "bad situation" did you rescue the dogs from? They might have had bad experiences with being left alone or in particular left in the yard. Labradors are very high energy dogs, they need lots of exercise and stimulation. You say you did lots of training for a while but then it stopped working.. Well you didn't mention walking your dogs. Walk them for 2+ hours before you leave them alone. Give them lots of things to do like chew bones and food puzzles etc. also start doing regular training with them. Practice putting them on a bed telling them stay and then leaving the room or something. Also do that when you leave to go out tell the dogs to stay and leave. This tells them it's okay to stay home without you and not to try escaping. I hope this helps, if you want any more advice you can speak with a veterinarian.
Think about it.
Labs have been bred for centuries to ignore physical discomfort. What would you think if someone asked you to jump in water that was barely above freezing, swim 1/2 mile to get a dead duck and then want you to do it again?
Trying to use physical things such as underground fences with Labs is an exercise in futility. You might have the dog that is the exception, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Labs figure out how to beat the fence in a matter of days, and then they tend to spend more time outside the fence than inside for no other reason than because they can.
underground fences work with some dogs but not all. many people say they r cheaper and a lot easier to maintain. but the reality is u always have to test the batteries. and not to mention that they scare the sh*t out of the dog. it will be afraid to leave the yard at all times. even when going for a walk. seriously think about it. do u really want ur dog to be afraid of its own yard
No they don't.. My friends have a male lab and he runs right through one and doesn't seem to care that he's getting shocked.
Even if it stops your dog from getting out of the yard, it doesn't stop other dogs from getting in and perhaps attacking your dog. Not worth the chance, in my opinion.
they don't work on any lab, trust me. I tried it with mine and it didn't turn out too good.
