about this story

The 5 pictures depict Ivan Pavlov's classical conditioning. The explanation for this is, the whenever the dog sees a snake on its owner's home or hear a scream, the dog's main priority is to protect its owner and its home. For him, no intruder should be able to enter its owner's home, especially those that are dangerous to the dog's instincts.

Classical conditioning is depicted here through: First, the dog does not know that a snake is dangerous or scary. The dog was conditioned that whenever the owner screams, the owner is in danger. So when the owner screamed, the dog was alerted that the snake was dangerous and should not be inside the owner's home. Before the conditioning: (NS) owner's scream > (UCS) no response from dog > (UCR) no sense of danger, but after the conditioning: (CS) owner's scream > (CR) sense of danger.
