If you pull the handle toward you , it should release and pop open.

My van door is diabolical. Sometimes it opens just by pulling the handle but not always. You may have to use your right hand to open the handle and your left hand to pry the door away from the body a bit. On some models there is a child proof lock so it can't be opened from the inside. Make sure that isn't on if you're trying from the inside.

If your dog can open the sliding door, you can use a broom handle to keep the door shut by wedging it so that the door will not slide. This will allow a child to open the door and block the dog from opening the door. You could also keep the door locked and teach the child how to unlock the door.
