    Question Learning to summon nature's allies

    Hi, since July, I've been playing d and d 3.5 and I took the Druid class.
    However, I've never summoned nature's allies for lack of purpose and knowledge but now, I really want to know how to use the spell correctly.

    My question is: when summoning, do you take the creature as it is in the PHB or do you have to advance it the same way you advance your animal companion.

    Many thanks

    Note: What happens to you animal companion when you shapeshift?

    The summoned allies are the same as in the monster manual, and nothing happens to your companion they just carry on obeying you. An animal companion isn't the same as a familiar which would be able to share your spells instead they're an essentially normal member of their specises which becomes stronger and tougher by their association with you.
    Give them bread and circusses and the plebs wont rise against you. Give adventurers dungeons and trapped chests and they won't waste time looking to ransack your home and kill your wife.

    If you don't have augment summoning, that is. And if you intend to use summoning a lot you should have it.

    Druid's get an extraordinary ability, Link, to use handle animal as a free action with their animal companion. and a +4 on the check. So you should be able to yes.
