Dog training questions for my new puppy?

Okay I just got a new boxer/pitbull mix puppy who is 11 weeks old. “I adopted him”. Hes a gret dog but I am having trouble trianing him so I have some questions.

1. When I am teaching him commands do I give him a treat after every attempt or only when he gets it right? “I am asking this because he seems to not do anything since he knows he will get the treat anyways.

2. When I hold him or make him sleep on my bed he whines. I read when he does that to just ignore him but is this true and what else should I do?

3. How do I establish that I am his owner? “I am the only male in the house and I am the one who feeds/walks him. I also do the thing where you roll him over and hold him with his stomach facing upwards to establish dominance. He has no problem with this. But what he does have a problem with is every stranger he meets he tries to tug his hardest on his leash to go home with them. What can I do to stop this?

4. When he gets older I want to enroll him in a class that teaches dogs to be personal protectors. Not attack dogs but where if they are confronted with their owners in danger they know how to react and can stop on command if needed. I know you will say any dog will do this but I have seen many dogs run away when confronted. And my dog is by no means aggressive. Taht is why I think he is a good canidate to train him this way. I live in a bad part of town and this would be a good idea when my mother is left home alone with him.

Any help is appreciated thank you for your time in helping me!
