Classical Conditioning

According to the text book classical conditioning is when one stimulus that does not elicit a certain response is paired or associtated with a second stimulus that does elicit a response so therefor the first response also elictits a response. An example of this that happens in my own home is that I have a guinea pig named Meatloaf and she chirps really loud and runs to her food bowl when she hears the fridge open or when she hears a bag ruffling. This stems from Meatloaf being fed after hearing the fridge open and bags ruffling.
