Sound select balanced hounds true to type, combining grace, athleticism and outstanding movement


JOMEJA is a small select kennel of long standing, located in the beautiful Bremer Valley of South East Queensland since 1976, which over the years has emphasised breed quality not quantity. Selectively breeding from sound stock has seen Jomeja produce versatile dogs which have made their mark in a variety of fields and lifestyles. Jomeja based their bloodlines on Vishala, Lwillows and Etosha, some of the earliest kennels in Australia and which have produced some of this country's most outstanding dogs.

In 1985 we co-owned and imported Am Ch and Ch Calico Ridge Commander Cody (imp US) from Diane Jacobsen in California.

We have also imported semen from Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, French, Lux. Int Champion UKUKHYANA SCOUT THE RED BARON owned by John and Asborg Berg in Norway.
