Just to sum up, is it grammatically correct to answer. My favorite animal is the dog? And If I"m just asking it as a singular noun (1) What is your favourite animal? Is it correct to answer with the plural? Dogs are my favourite animals? Doesn"t it have to have a coherence in number? (in this case if I ask with the auxiliary is don"t I have to answer with is too?)
It would sound natural to mix the number in this way in normal speech, even if it isn"t exactly logical.-What is your favorite animal?-Dogs.Here, the word "dogs" represents a class of animal, so it can almost be considered as a sort of singular.By the way, you are mixing British and American spelling: favourite / favorite. If AmEn is more prevalent in Peru, then you should use that spelling, and vice versa.

Yes, but it makes dogs sound kind of exotic. And you can say "My favourite animal is Canis familiaris", which in English sounds more scientific than "familiar".
And If I"m just asking it as a singular noun (1) What is
your favourite animal? Is it correct to answer with the plural?Dogs are my favourite animals? Doesn"t it have to have a coherence in number?
Such an answer does not directly answer the question, but it probably gives the information needed for the asker to understand what the answer is.

I don"t know why you want a full sentence answer, but a direct one would probably begin with "My favourite animal is", which could be followed by the short answer "dogs".There is of course more than one way to interpret "What is your favourite animal?", and each interpretation may yield a different kind of answer. All the following are direct answers:My favourite animal is the genus Canis.My favourite animal is dogs.Dogs are my favourite animal.My favourite animal is my dog.My favourite animal is Ruff here.Ruff is my favourite animal. (Aren"t you, Ruff?)My favourite animal is good at smelling.My favourite animal is good at smelling bad.Sometimes an indirect answer is preferable if it answers to what the asker wants to know. Thus "Dogs are my favourite" is more likely to satisfy the asker than either of my "smelling" answers.
