To Each His Other: Do I Need an Apostrophe?

letslearnsomegrammar “We dislike each other’s dogs.”

“We dislike each others’ dogs.”

“We dislike each others dogs.”

Which one is correct?

The first one is correct: “We dislike each other’s dogs.”

Each other is treated as a singular pronoun (not plural) and emphasizes two or more separate people.

You would say this:

“We sang to each other for a long time.”

Not this:

“We sang to each others for a long time.”

Don’t forget to make the noun (dogs) plural after “each other’s.”

Why? Because two or more people are involved, meaning they have two or more things.
