Worth using a protective filter for dog photography?

I've recently bought a second-hand 70-200 f2.8 and am considering getting a UV filter to protect it but wondered what people's views were, and what filter might be best? I've read mixed reviews about some of them.

I use the lens for photographing dogs in action. I'm not too worried about water/slobber as these can be cleaned off (or maybe I should be worried!), but it's the times when dogs crash into me or grit, mud, bits of foliage etc hits the lens. Up until now I've been using a 70-200 f4 and the lens hood for that seems to provide a lot more protection so I haven't bothered with filters before.
