I imagine it would keep their paws protected from sharp rocks, glass, or cactus if you're in a desert like climate. My dog had a set of snow boots so we could play in the snow for longer than five minutes.

No since the only thing he would experience is the asphalt during the day; although I believe he is well adjusted to that. I did buy him doggles for road trips to protect his eyes...
