Does he know sit-stay? If so you can start by putting him on the leash before opening the door (just in case) and having him do a sit stay. Don't release him from the stay until you are ready. Then give lots of praise and a treat. Eventually he should just go into a sit at the door until you tell him its okay to get up.
This is hard. I'm still working on it with Lexi. Not having much progress. Lexi will sit but its like her butt is a spring. It doesn't stay down that long.
