The activity level you are looking for:
Examples: if you'd only exercise your dog by playing with it in the back yard, that's Very Low; walking the dog a couple times a week is Low, walking the dog every day is Medium; jogging every day with the dog is High, jogging every day and/or taking the dog to work or to kid's soccer games & hiking on the weekends would be Very High.
There is no riqht or wronq answer - Every dog has its own activity level and we want to match the dog with a family that shares the same activity level.
