Advanced Training in New York/CT

My boy is 7.5 months old and currently finishing up puppy/family foundation level classes. I am trying to figure out what I want to introduce him to next, even if its just to get a flavor for it and learn some additional training I can do with him.
A little about him: 75lbs, extremely high prey drive, listens well although not perfectly yet. Comes from excellent working line German parents.
I have looked at obedience, protection, schutzhund and nose work type training. One major obstacle is location: There doesn't seem to be much available to me outside of nose work and obedience within an hour drive of my house.
Does anyone know of any places in Southern CT/Westchester County where this is offered?

Look for clubs there. BTW...I drive 3 hours for a club. It's common.

Whenever there is club training and whenever I have a lesson. At least 2x/mth. Often 3.

Thats not so bad. I wasnt sure what kind of commitment something like that entails. Obviously I know you have to put in work outside of the formal training.

It depends on the club. Find one, visit, and go from there. At least one weekend per month I'm there all weekend and stay over.

I'm in Somers, NY. I would definitely be interested in talking to someone like that.
