eletric fence training

Question:

I have a 2 year old JRt female and I recently put in an electric fence. I trained peanut on the fence per the instructions that came with the video. And for 2 months or so she loved being able to wander in the backyard with me and to also play ball. I discovered that the battries had become weak and changed them and when I did peanut got shocked 2 times because of breaking the barrier. I took her inside and took the collar off and just let her lay in my lap. Since that day she refuses to leave her pen when she has the eletric fence collar on. I thought it may take a while after she was shocked but it has been over a month and when she has the collar on she will not leave her small "potty" pen to play in the yard. Help what should I do? Thanks Shawn
