    Question Casting definitions

    I've been reading Graham's Smartwork II and what keeps popping up is what is called "definitive casting" and "literal casting." What does this mean? Can somebody please clarify for me?

    Literal casting is actually casting in the direction you want the dog to go. A prime example is during double t when you send the dog, stop the dog at the second apex and make a right cast. If the dog comes forward to get the first over pile instead of the one you sent them for you stop the dog and instead of an over or a back it's a combination, an angled back.
