Maysville Police Officer Jeff Hord recently underwent training for the handling of a police dog in Brown County Ohio.Hord is shown with the department's new K-9 officer, Misho.Terry Prather/Staff

"He found crack cocaine in a vehicle," said Officer Jeff Hord, who is the officer assigned to the dog.
Hord spent six weeks in training to learn how to handle a canine.Misho spent two weeks with Hord to bond.
David Johnson of Southern Ohio K-9 wanted Hord to become familiar with the dog and the dog to become familiar with a new home.
The dog, which came from Holland, is cross-trained to sniff narcotics and assist with apprehending a suspect, Hord said.Most dogs are trained only in narcotics.
Hord said if the dog can be taken to where the child was last seen, then he can track the child.
Part of Hord's and Misho's training was tracking.The dog learned to sniff for crushed vegetation to find where a person had been walking.
Dogs can sniff a scent for only 15 to 20 minutes at a time, according to the officers.Then the animals have to rest for awhile.
Hord also had to practice carrying 100 pounds out of the field, swamp or other area where the dog had led.
"You are simulating carrying the dog out if it is hurt," Hord said.
During training Hord was bitten twice by dogs.He said the exercise was to wear down his strength and resistance.
The animal is docile until Hord commands him to be aggressive.Misho is safe around children, but a search of any school would be done only during a look-down.He has been trained to be passive while working, unlike the scratch and sniff dogs of years past.
By using the Southern Ohio K-9, Hord can attend training classes every Tuesday.
Hord, who has been on the force for nearly three years, was chosen because of his previous work in narcotics, according to Baxter.
"Jeff was always working hard, out there fighting drugs," Baxter said.
Hord said Misho is an extra tool in the war against drugs.Drug dealers or users should make no mistake, Misho is more than a dog, he is an officer with the Maysville Police Department and is protected as such.

McKay, Detective Mike Palmer and Hord presented a program to the students concerning drug usage and search and seizure by police canine units.

Horch and Officer Jeff Hord didn't paint a pretty picture of what happens when drugs become part of life.
Hord told students if they get caught with rolling papers, they can get seven days in jail.
Hord said they better produce smoking tobacco, because without it, they can face a drug paraphernalia charge.
Hord showed students how drug dog Misho can sniff out drugs in a locker.He let the dog lose and when Misho came to the locker with drugs, he scratched once and sat back.Hord gave the dog a treat, opened the locker and found crack cocaine, which he had planted there before bringing the dog inside.
The cocaine had been confiscated in an arrest last year and was sealed in a plastic bag.
The message Horch and Hord were passing on to the students was plain talk, which impressed Stidham.

"There isn't a more versatile tool that law enforcement can use than a dog," said Johnson during a Tuesday session with a number of officers from surrounding counties, including Maysville Police Officer Jeff Hord and his K-9, Misho.

Hord was on the receiving end of the dog bites described above, subjecting himself to attacks from three different K-9 units while wearing a bulky protective outfit known as a "bite suit".
Made from a strong jute fiber, the full suit weighs about 30 pounds and can withstand most vicious dog bites, though Hord admits he still gets nervous when he sees a police dog rushing toward him at full speed.
"Even when I'm at home, I'm working out with Misho, trying to stay sharp, " said Hord.
The repetition of constant training is what Johnson seeks out of the dogs and officers he trains.
