Mystery of the hole in wall
For weeks, an indention appeared in the wall at the end of the stairs. My staircase is designed in two sections with a 180 degree turn and landing at the halfway point.
I had recently given away a child's bunkbed and blamed it on the movers...even yelling at my husband for not watching them closely.
Then - it started to grow. I blamed the kids...were they banging it with their toys? The stick horses looked mighty suspicious.
As the "slight indentions" grew to a full blown hole, I caught the culprit in action. My doberdude literally flies down the stairs at full speed, often cannot make the tight turn, and body slams into the sheetrock.
Oh jeez... I would love to repair it...but first need to figure out ways to prevent the Dober Flying in the house. The landing is not very large although maybe a small piece of furniture would do the trick. Ugh...sharing as I know others can laugh and commiserate.

Maybe just put up some wainscotting on the stairwell? Add style and durability.

Well, duh, that is the Tokyo Drift way of making the turn on the stairs, for Dobermans.

After you fix the hole, a sheet of plexiglass might fix it. It'll look kinda funky, but would be easy and cheap and you could remove it when your pupper slows down (I'm sure they do eventually)

My 6 month old boy LOVES to slide on my hardwood floors. He runs across my kitchen into the living room and doesn't even try stopping. He just drops to his stomach while turning so his butt hits my front door. He jumps back up and runs to the kitchen, repeating the process into my kitchen wall. At first me and my husband were concerned he would get hurt or maybe he couldn't control his feet on the floor. Nope, we have learned he loves this game. I'm so afraid for my Sheetrock and the front door. Sent from my iPhone using Petguide.com Free App

Dobe body slaming into sheetrock...that is a funny story...even funnier the whole family got blamed...lol
I have done permanent drywall repairs...this is the method, I use:
- cut out damage with a utility knife, 4 straight sides
- using scrap 1/2 to 3/4" plywood, screw the wood backer behind the hole, leaving a lip
- cut the sheetrock repair piece in the appropiate hole size
- using 1-5/8 long coarse thread drywall screws, affix the sheetrock to the plywood backer
- coat groove with sheetrock 90 (strong powder mixed with water, no shrinkage either)
- top coat with white premixed drywall mud & sand surface with 120 grit block (2x)
- prime & paint
