There is the Empire Working Dog Club in Marion, NY. Deb Zappia (the one who won WUSV recently) is one of the founders I believe. I'm not sure if they are taking on full, working members now, but they are available for one-on-one or basic obedience training.
Also, there is a Schutzhund club out of Buffalo, but that may be getting a little bit away from you. When you look for upstate NY Schutzhund clubs, make sure you click on the New England Region, and not the midatlantic region. The NE will have more clubs in central and upstate NY listed.
