I don't know if the dog trainers comment was geared torwards dogsports like IPO, mondio, etc or protection only, but if he's a petsmart type trainer it doesn't matter...he assumes they're all the same thing...which others have noted.
Most people have no use for a PPD. The presence of a GSD is 95% of the protection you'll ever need. I train IPO with my dog and starting to get into mondio. I do it purely for the sport, not because I expect or want my dog to protect me. It's a game for him and sport for me.
Regarding being dangerous around childeren, if I had to leave my child alone around a well trained IPO GSD or an untrained GSD....I'd definitely chose the IPO trained GSD.
Here's some pics of one of our club members "vicious attack dogs". Watch the video below of that same dog with a different club members child. It was the first time the dog and child met. If a dog is dangerous around childeren, strangers, etc...it's a weaked nerved dog and shouldn't be doing dogsports.

I am not recommending the OP get a PPD or train their dog in PP, but I do get tired of misconceptions.

PPD dogs aren't pets...SchH, IPO, KNPV, Ring Sports are games for dogs that happen to involve biting. Some dogs can do PPD, some can't, but excell at the biting sports.
2 Different things, for 2 different types of dogs. Check out anything you can find written by Will Rambeau - he is a VERY accomplished PPD Trainer. His view mirrors your trainer.
I wouldn't have a PPD dog in my house, but I do bite training with my GSD.

Look, not every dog should do bite work. have the dog evaluated. What I found is that schutzhund exposes your dog to you. In my opinion this makes owning it safer. You learn more about your dog and that knowledge can help you have a happier ownership experience.

For dogs you need this:

It was discovered, that people are scared of dogs in muzzles, when muzzles were put on to stop the dog picking eadibles from the ground. Pink and blue colour muzzles made the difference. Pink collars make people relax. I suppose, it's all right for a puppy girl.
