Yes, you don't need a "threadle arm" but the threadle arm helps you turn your chest -- perhaps that's why it works so well. I see Janita and Jaakko using "threadle arms" all the time in the various videos.

You are correct Phil, it does help the handler turn their chest, but many handlers think it is a necessity and become reliant on it, and you can use the arm without a chest turn which is conflicting information for our dogs. That is why this challenge helps handlers think less about their arms and more about the more important handling elements.
