My husband does sales and travels out of town about 8 nights per month.  I’ll be honest, I do get freaked out sometimes, especially because I love watching crime shows when he’s gone.  I always have the door locked at night, and when I go to bed I turn on our alarm system which definitely helps with peace of mind.  I’m definitely paranoid when I have to walk the dogs late at night, but I always make sure to full survey the area first when I walk out the door.  Our neighborhood is very safe, but you never know…  The worst thing I’ve heard of in the last few years is a couple of break-ins to cars that weren’t locked.    

The other night when he was gone our neighbor’s alarm went off around 1 am.  I completely freaked out, and turned on our alarm at once since it hadn’t been set yet.  I’ve also had a few times when the dogs start randomly barking at the door, which is similar to your story.  I guess my advice is, if you’re really that scared when he’s gone, maybe it would be good to invest in an alarm system for your home?  I definitely have peace of mind when ours is turned on.  It’s great for being alone in your house, but also coming home because you know there’s no chance of there being an intruder inside.  Ours is around $30 a month and installation was free.
