The hormone detected by human pregnancy test strips, HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin), is not produced by dogs, while the hormone used for detecting pregnancy in dogs, relaxin, is not produced by humans.

So the answer to your question is a resounding NO, human pregnancy test strips will not work on dogs; same way pregnancy test strips for dogs will not work on humans.
