1) Obedience classes

2) Put her on a leash before opening the door.

3) Block off the front door area so she can’t get out when the door is opened.

    I also have a lab but I started training her as a puppy. When we would go into the front yard I would let her wander in the yard and explore but as soon as she walked to that point to where the yard almost ends, I would go stand in front of her and tell her "NO, STAY IN THE YARD", pick her up and put her into maybe the middle of the yard.
    After repeating that over and over she eventually learned that she can only go until a certain point and she doesn't go out the yard unless I go on the outside of my yard and call her to come.
    Hope I was able to help =]
