I can remember,that each toad was able to speak, who were summoned by Jiraiya or Naruto...I know that Tsunade's snail or Orochimaru's snake is able too...but what abou i.e. the Ninken? I know that Pakkun can talk,but what about the others(I know around 3-4 dogs out of 9),or Kiba's ninken...I know that the Pein summoning's aren't able to talk..

So, is there a rule that every animal can talk, or something like this?

Although they didn't explicitly show whether they can talk or not,but one thing is for sure that Pakkun can talk.

Kiba's akamaru cant talk.So we can assume that other dogs of Kakashi can't talk[since there is no evidence in manga or anime].

So inorder to answer your question:-
Is there a rule that every animal can talk, or something like this?

I would say No. It is not mandatory for animals to talk

No, not every summoned animal can speak.

For example when Naruto learned summoning the toads, he first summoned a tadpole, which was not able to talk. Now you could say it was just too young to speak, but it didn't make any vocal sound at all, like crying etc.

As far as I know none of the Inazuka's clan's dogs are able to talk either, nor do I think that Itachi's crows were able to speak.
