Default "Real" Protection Dogs

I sometimes get requests from people looking for a "protection dog" that run the gamut from a dog that will alert to the presence of a stranger, or to alert on command, or to bite on command...and further yet: dogs that will engage in a realistic situation.

As some discussion starters:

What do you feel a dog should be capable of to be considered a "Real" protection dog? Sleeve? Suit? Hidden sleeve? Muzzle work?

What kind of scenario based training do you engage in to fit your lifestyle?
