Off-leash dog parks and dog daycares in Zurich?

We've just moved to Zurich from the US and are busy reorganizing our dog Luna's daily schedule. We had a big enclosed yard and a daycare we used once a week back home. I'm just wondering what the range of options is here for getting her exercised.

Are there any enclosed, off-leash areas? (She's a bit of a squirrel/rabbit chaser and not perfect on the recall command) Or large enough parks/woods where dogs are allowed off-leash?

How about doggie daycare? A place she could go socialize with other dogs and get her ya-ya's out once in a while?

If neither of these exist, we'll have to settle for good, long, walks through the Zurich and nearby areas. Any favorite dog walks, that pass at least some grass/fields?

What type of dog do you have? Often in parks and where there is wildlife there are signs to ask you to keep your dog on the lead, in other forests you are ok to take the dog off the lead.

You also need to be careful with farmers fields and dogs doing their business

I was pointed at this place http://www.hundeabenteuerland.ch/english.html

I haven't used it yet but it looks cool. I decided I couldn't keep my dog with me in Switzerland as I'll be travelling too much but so far here have found great woods to run with him in.
