Left turns

I am trying to polish Bender's left turns, and am having difficulty feeling when he does it well. He works his rear well when I pivot in place, and with his feet on the pan, but I don't feel like it's quite there on the flat. Any thoughts? http://youtu.be/Dktx9WVOxeo

I saw your post on Facebook before I saw it here, so I'll paste what I said here, not for you but just so anyone not on Facebook can see what I said already

"I work left turns with pressure on leash held behind my back and treat in left hand turning head out. Something I picked up from my last Linda K seminar - when working stationary turns or if I pause after a turn, I will have him actually swing his rear all the way behind me so it is by the back of my right leg. By overdoing it when I don't continue forward motion and getting him to really work the rear then, it smooths out to a really nice left turn when we do a real one."

Bender is looking really nice, he is Ted and Ziva, right?
