The Behavior Checklist (BCL) is a behavior scoring system used internationally by organizations breeding and/or training service and guides.

Developed by Dr. James Serpell from the University of Pennsylvania, USA, in collaboration with multiple guide dog organizations, the BCL provides a common language and coding to describe aspects of behavior in a variety of observations from puppy test through training.

BCL data are used to identify dogs needing extra support, matching pups to handlers, behavioral trends over time and genetic selection using estimated breeding values.
