Samuel Allen


Samuel “Buck” Allen, as the Head Trainer for Custom Canine Unlimited, brings vast knowledge that spans the boundaries of higher education, law enforcement, and foreign and domestic K-9 work. His education and experience assist CCU in being a driving force in providing the highest standards of core trainers the K-9 industry has to offer.

Samuel Allen received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Political Science with a pre-law concentration in August 2006 from North Georgia College and State University, where he served as a member of the Corps of Cadets and the precision rifle team. These two positions offered Allen a secondary education in leadership as a senior rifle team instructor, assistant squad leader, and squad leader.

Allen used his education to begin a career in law enforcement in 2008, where he was certified by the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council (GA POST) as a Police Officer. His excellence and escalatory nature quickly provided Allen with experience in the patrol division, entry/search team, traffic enforcement, incident reporting, and K-9 Unit, where he served as a K-9 Assistant and decoy. During this time, Allen used his free time to attend specialized training as a K-9 Handler and K-9 Trainer and obtained his State of Georgia Intermediate Police Officer Certification. It was his K-9 training in the area of obedience, detection, tracking, protection, and aggression, K-9 certification, and K-9 experiences spearheaded his career among the elite.

Samuel Allen obtained his explosives and patrol dog certifications and undertook three K-9 deployments in the Middle East. With deployments in Forward Operating Base Prosperity, Baghdad, Iraq; Forward Operating Base Blackhorse, Phoenix, Alamo in Kabul, Afghanistan; and Camp Balad, in Balad, Iraq, Allen gained additional K-9 experience and operational knowledge in the areas of canine searches at entry control points, random anti-terrorism measures, “show of force” missions, both interior and exterior explosive searches, and canine decoy while displaying the ability to not only work in a hostile foreign environment, but also display the ability to work with other U.S. contractors and military personnel, various NATO country military units, African and European contractors, Iraqi and Afghan nationals, and the Iraqi and Afghan military. This vast array of diversity, working knowledge, and K-9 experience has placed him in an optimum position to take on his next K-9 assignment with CCU.

The experience was a good learning experience and essential for my dog team to have a productive human location search. It is a more effective way to find people and more reliable. I had a great experience and learned much from it.
