Pavlovs Classical Conditioning Theory

Pavlovs classical conditioning theory considers learning as habit formation and is based on the principle of association and substitution. It is simply stimulus-response type of learning where in place of a natural stimulus like food, water, and sexual contact etc. the artificial stimulus like sound of a bell, sight of the light of a definite color etc. can evoke a natural response. When both the artificial or neutral stimulus­ (ringing of the bell) and natural stimulus (food) are brought together, several times, the dog becomes habituated or conditioned to response to this situation. There becomes perfect association between the types of stimuli presented together.
