In short contact pressure.

 

The Dog point you would tend to want to either locate in a hole, or provide resistance with minimal surface damage (such as on a retractable height adjuster on a stand...it will grip, but not damage)

The cup point will dig in to the surface a little...providing a little firmer grip at the "cost" of damage to the surface. Generally more used for semi-permanant fixing. 

 

There are various other ends available too!
