You need to find a reputable trainer to work with.
This is not something that you should be doing on your own, especially if you do not have knowledge and experience in this area. Attempting to do this on your own will cause more harm than good. The only way any form of protection training can be safely and responsibly done is by enlisting a good, experienced trainer.

The first step is to see if your dog has decent prey drive and you can teach him to bite a prey object like a rag or tug. This has nothing to do with agitation. There are numerous videos you can Google. Why do you want to teach your dog to bite? You sound very inexperienced and I'm not sure you know what you're getting into.

It is not a good idea to do the agitation work by yourself, but you could probably do some drive building. try to find a reputable trainer or club in your area.

if you do agitation work on your own dog it is going to backfire, its counter productive
I do the majority of the bite work on my two dogs, and even work in high aggression with my female, but she is a special little heartless bitch lol.

OP, don't do bite work with your own dogs, I don't think you have the experience, and it's impossible to say if you have a dog that can handle working on its owner

i see a lot of experienced people do prey work for sport with their dogs but never seen or heard of them doing agiitation or anything like that. They do it for IPO or ring.

Yeah I wouldn't suggest it with most dogs. I wouldn't dare do so with my male. It would be at the cost of our relationship
