Welcome to Jojavik Dobermanns..
We are Jackie & Victoria Ingram breeders of the "JOJAVIK DOBERMANNS" ....Jojavik was a journey started by ourselves and our exceptional foundation bitch "Jordon" Our affix derives from the first letters of our names JO-rdon-JA-ckie-VIK-toria.
Jojavik HQ is based at Foxburrows, Great Warley, Brentwood, Essex. Although semi-rural it is still easily accessible, just off of the A127/M25. 32 acres totally surrounded by woods but still safely enclosed. Here there are lots of adventures for our dogs, out running on the garden is their favourite place to be, plenty of space for them... Dobermann heaven !

The story so far..
"Jackie" has owned dogs all her life, starting with Rough Collies & Samoyeds.
Whether it has been agility, obdience or showing, Jackie's love for dogs has always been there, as a young girl attending Crufts dog show every year to spectate and entering her first dog show when she was just 22 years old.
Even though the show scene wasn't a regular thing back then, the bug obviously bit hard !
"Victoria" has from an early age shown a passion for dogs, growing up with them and owning her first Dobermann in 1994.
Victoria started in the show ring with Junior Handling at the age of just 8, at that time showing various breeds in the handling
and eventually progressing to a high level in the UK with her Shetland Sheepdogs.
Our love for the Dobermann began when we purchased "Molly" KHANEVE COCKNEY REBEL as a our pet from Yvonne and Dave Bevans of the Khaneve Dobermanns in January 1994.
Molly's Sire was at that time the UK BREED RECORD HOLDER the remarkable "Khan" [CH SALLATE FERRIS]
winner of an astonishing 42 CC’s, 24 Reserve CC’s and winner of the Working Group at Crufts TWICE !
"KHANEVE COCKNEY REBEL" (R.I.P 15/01/94~22/11/00)
Molly taught us alot about the Dobermann, like how demanding, mischievious and attention seeking they can be, with the strangest of characteristics at times, but also how you couldn't find a better friend.They are the most loyal and loving animal you could ever share your life with. In our opnion there is NO dog like the Dobermann.
In November 2000 we sadly lost our beloved "Molly" and returned back to Yvonne & Dave for another Khaneve puppy.... then along come "Jordon" MARCAVIE RYTHM 'N' DANCE FROM KHANEVE bred by Marje Setchfield. Our thanks go to Yvonne & Dave Bevans for allowing Jordon to come and be part of our family.
MARCAVIE RYTHM 'N' DANCE FROM KHANEVE 1 RCC (R.I.P 25/08/99~04/08/09)
In 2001 Victoria starting showing Dobermanns, this was to be a whole new adventure ! Jordon had numerous success at both
Championship & Open Show level, this started the enthusiasium in the Dobermann ring and as they say the rest is history...
After much thought in January 2003 "Jordon" was mated to "Hoagy" JOWENDYS ROBIN THE HOOD- UK Top Sire 2004/2005 & UK Top Stud dog 2005/2006/2008.
On the 15th March 2003 11 Black/Rust puppies were born...
this was the beginning of jojavik...
& the rest is history...
Together Jordan & Hoagy produced a litter of quality puppies, and it is from this excellent combination that we had our first Champions;

Without a doubt Jordon was an invaluable asset to our kennel, with her old english bloodlines she produced us quality, sound dogs,
with excellent temperaments which is still evident in our breeding today. Jordon shall remain at the fore-front of the Jojavik affix
where she rightly deserves to be, now resting in Foxburrows grounds keeping a watchful eye on the legacy she has left us....

Our Mentor, Our Friend - Alma Page-Owen
08/03/1939 ~ 11/11/2013
"Alma" was the breeder of the Legendary FINDJANS Dobermanns. 'The Findjans' bloodlines flow through so many of our Dobermanns today. Over the years Alma produced many Champions, two of her most prominent stud dogs were 'CH Findjans Poseidon' and 'CH Findjans Chaos' who both stamped their mark in Dobermann history.
Alma's breeding programme was known throughout the world.
Alma judged in various countries and the respect she received was always so positive. Anyone could ask Alma's advice and she would give it, anyone could ask her opinion of their dogs and she would give it, but she would not tell you what you wanted to hear, she would tell the truth but always in a constructive way, Alma was honest like that. A very loyal friend, If she liked you, she loved you !
It was the year 2005 when we first met Alma. In The Dobermann Club Yearbook 2004 two of our dogs Jarna 'CH Jojavik Dancefloor Diva' & Ponk 'CH J.Wurlitzer JW' caught Alma's eye, she decided to contact us and this was to be the start of a wonderful friendship.
Even though Alma was herself no longer active in the breed she always had the breeds best interest at heart.
Alma took a massive liking to our dogs and the 'type' we were producing, often saying they reminded her of what she had bred.
Alma loved all our dogs like they were her own, pictured above with Izzy 'CH/LUX CH Jojavik Gangsters Moll JW' & Kodi 'CH J. Mafioso JW'.
We feel very priveledged that Alma choose to share her knowledge and her love for the Dobermann with us, she taught us so much which has set us in good stead, and for that we will always be thankful to her.
Alma had not been in good health in recent years, but she always managed to get to the shows with us, which she loved.
Alma's last two shows she attended before her passing were 'The Welsh Dobermann Club CH Show in October 2013'
our 'Billy & Viva's' 1st Show at 6 months old, Alma was determined to be there for it (I will never forget that journey to the show lol)
Billy ended up winning BPIS & Viva won her MPB class (we cried tears of joy & sadness that day)
Alma's last ever Show was Maidstone Open Show, where Viva won her first BPIS !
We hope Alma knows how well Billy & Viva have both gone on to do and she is up there looking down on us with a smile.
We know she would be proud.
ALL OUR WINS ARE DEDICATED TO YOU ALMA.
Above, the beautiful ' FINDJANS ' flowers sent to Alma from us & Viv Lucas (of course in red)
Pictured with them is Alma's favourite Jojavik girl 'Izzy' who stole Alma's heart as a baby, she was made up to a Crufts Champion on Alma's birthday and Izzy was there with us at Alma's funeral to say a final goodbye, just as Alma wanted.
In 2005 we were blessed with a Dear friend and a Great Mentor… In 2013 we had to say goodbye to her.... we miss her terribly.
The Dobermann world has lost “ONE OF THE BEST”…Now reunited with all her beloved “Findjans Dobermanns”
Sleep peacefully Alma. YOUR LEGEND LIVES ON IN JOJAVIK & YOUR MEMORY IN OUR HEARTS. Until we meet again xxxxx
We have now owned Dobermanns since 1994.
In 2008 we were both invited to become members of Dobermann Rescue. Jackie serves as vice chairman of the Dobermann Rescue council and every July organises 'The Dobermann Rescue Companion Show' at Digswell, Hertfordshire to raise funds for the less fortunate Dobermanns.
We are dedicated to producing the perfect all round Dobermann, breeding for TEMPERAMENT, HEALTH & BREED TYPE- Acting as responsible breeders and 'nuturing' the breed whilst we are here, for the future generations to come.....
