How do security dogs work?

I know that there are companies that rent security dogs, but I am wondering how that works.

Does the renter just hold onto the dog as long as they are paying for the service, or does it have to go back home at the end of it's shift? Do the dogs get rotated every day?

Is there a limit to how long the dog can work? I've seen dogs being alert, but napping on the job, seems like it might not get tired just staying there 24/7.

Are there guards that get hired with their own security dogs?

Are German Shepherds the only dogs trained for the job, and if so, why? That's the only dog I ever see with cops and guards

Do the dogs get stressed, or is it like search dogs that think they are just playing?
