Default Protection training

Can trained aggression in a dog for a specific purpose (protection/ guard/ police work etc) be 100% controlled ?

And what should a good trainer do before beginning protection work with a dog?

I was told a dog of sound temperament could not be made aggressive by this type of training. I assume a trainer would temperament test the dog before starting then


I know there are many bloodlines bred specifically for protection/ schutzhund. Does that mean a mixed breed cannot be good at it?

Just wondering what to expect before meeting w this trainer. I'll be having a lot of time on my hands in the coming months and thought I should get involved in something stimulating for me and my dog. I am not planning to compete or anything. It's mostly for fun.
Thanks
