The fire is what I often think about too. When I accidentally set off my smoke alarm, I tell the dogs to go outside. I want to train them to go outside instead of hide under my office desk!
My guys don't dig or go outside when I'm not home unless they have to potty. They just sleep on the couch waiting my return.
My biggest concern with a dog door is people steel dogs. So I have locks on all my gates.
