Secondary conditioning (Second order conditioning): pairing a stimulus with a previously conditioned stimulus. Sensitisation: where the arousal caused by one stimulus causes greater reactivity to presentations of another. Systematic desensitisation: reduction of the response to a noxious stimulus by relaxation rather than the introduction of a second unconditioned stimulus. Shaping: a form of training where approximations to the desired behaviour, becoming increasingly specific over time, are reinforced.

The most notable use of this technique is in the training of performance animals; for example, in television adverts or films. However, shaping can also be useful in modifying an animal’s response. Systematic desensitisation Systematic desensitisation is a method used to gradually reduce an animal’s response to a stimulus until the animal remains in a neutral emotional state when the stimulus is presented. It is achieved by gradually exposing the animal to increasingly intense forms of the stimulus while the animal is relaxed.

That is, we reach the situation where the dog will urinate or defecate (CR) whenever it encounters the environmental stimuli associated with being outdoors (CS), regardless of whether the bowel or bladder are completely full.
