The 2008 trials were held in Frederick, MD at Breakaway Action Dogs a few short miles from the host hotel. It was good the trials were indoors because four inches of rain fell on the first day of the trial and it continued to be wet on the second day. With the unprecedented turn out, the facility was definitely cosy.

This was the best attended trial to date. There were 239 entries on Sunday and 225 entries on Monday. A total of 94 dogs were entered over the two days.

When the original Judge took ill, Blair Kelly stepped in and gave up entries in another trial and a leave day to judge the trial. Blair added some twists to make the trials memorable.
