Spot the trap before your dog finds it

You're out enjoying the day with your dog and it's trapping season.  We're told by the MN Trappers Association that it's not their responsibility to protect your dog from their hidden body grip traps and that if you just "manage" your dog, as Rep Tom Hackbarth said on WCCO, it will be safe.

Can you spot the hidden trap baited with grouse feathers and guts before your dog finds it and is killed?  If your dog isn't killed instantly can you find it and release it in time?

Why is it even your responsibility?  Shouldn't the trapper who sets body grips be responsible their trap?
