    A perilous trap that belongs to me alone,
    Much fear here lies for the bird of dogs.

    What am I?

    You are all very close. The answer is simply 'a mine'

    My rationale being:

    A perilous trap - a mine (landmine etc.)

    that belongs to me alone - mine

    Much fear here lies for the bird of dogs - an underground mine holds much fear for the canary, originally found on the canary islands - Islas Canarias, the Island of the Dogs.

    Although technically speaking the canary would probably not be aware of it's potential fate and therefore not be afraid.

    The trick for the last line being that "lies" and "isle" are anagrams.
