Yeah, this is really a training (and maybe exercise?) issue...
You need to work on obedience. Bolting out the door, any door, is just a learned behavior that you've worked around via tethering, but it sounds like never really addressed via training.
No amount of money or training will make an under-exercised dog behave! So figure out a way to meet his needs, then train him to meet yours.
There is no SILVER BULLET that will fix this problem. Change your routine...and teach him some boundaries!
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog. Mark Twain
