Our History

David Horowitz and the Staff  

David grew up on the property and started taking care of dogs and cats while still in grade school. Later, he worked with his father as a veterinary technician and learned the art of obedience training. After college, he pursued another career, but he often felt something pulling him back. He missed the dogs and the chance to do what he truly enjoyed. When he had the opportunity to come into the business in 1980, he seized it. 

All of Weber's staff members are knowledgeable professionals, and many have been with Weber's for years. David is proud of his staff, both as people and as professionals. It is easy for people to say that they "love dogs," but his staff proves it every day. 

They spend time with each and every dog, not just the cute little puppies. They give extra attention to older dogs, for example.They take the time to answer your questions, and it's David's pleasure to introduce his staff to you. 

A Little Bit of Our History  

Weber's Training School has been here for a long time. 

In 1925, Josef Weber purchased the property from Colonel Schwartzkopf of the New Jersey State Police. By the way, this was General Norman Schwartzkopf's father, a child he had spent many happy days with on the property. 

Josef Weber had an international reputation as one of the originators of obedience training in this country. His clients were an international "who's who" of the famous and the infamous: heads of state, captains of industry, sports celebrities, academics, Nobel laureates, and other, less savory characters, too. 

In 1946, Jack Blumenthal and Milton Horowitz, David's father, purchased the boarding kennel and training school from Josef Weber and also founded the Princeton Animal Hospital on the property. David Horowitz took over the reins at Weber's in 1980.
