How do you extinguish a conditioned response? (Let's say, with a dog, food, and a bell.) A) Sometimes the bell comes before food, sometimes with food, sometimes after.  B) keep ringing the bell, but never present the food.  Feedback: 2.  (# 1 would strengthen the response, and # 3 would just teach him to eat fast. ) C) ring the bell, give the food, but spray the dog with cold water while he tries to eat.
