Discouraging Escape? (Non-GSD)

We have two Frenchies with a lot of issues, as far as training goes. (Since no one's really worked with them).

I've been walking them and working with them on certain things, but one of the biggest problems we have with them is trying to keep them in the house when the door opens. They'll squeeze their way out between your feet.

How can we keep them from bolting out the door? I've been working with Aiden - when I go to walk Yoda (to work on his leash manners), Aiden tries to get out. It took me about ten minutes to get out the door today because I made him stay back. He was shaking and screaming he was so excited! I felt bad.
I know how I can get out the door without him bolting, but it takes a while, and as soon as I'm out the door, he starts screaming and crying. It sounds like someone's being murdered inside! (Our neighbor is a cop and called my mom because he heard them screaming and he was concerned.)

The boys have separation anxiety issues when they're away from one another, but I HAVE to work with them one at a time. Aiden is really good on a leash, and Yoda... not so much. Plus I think it'd be very difficult to try and train them both at the same time. I want to be able to focus on one dog, and him focus on me.

Sorry this is so long.
