My Ranger has just entered 4th level and I've decided to use his Hunter's Bond to gain an Animal Companion. However, the rules detailing companions are not clear on how much training they enter play with (beyond what it says about bonus tricks on page 52:
These bonus tricks don't require any training time or Handle Animal checks,…
What about the other tricks (typically six for a Int 2 Animal Companion) that the companion is capable of learning?
Also, can this bonus trick detailed above be General Purpose training? This is assuming got course the animal doesn't start play with all possible tricks, otherwise it is doesn't provide any benefit.
Finally, this is not for Pathfinder Society which does state that the first Animal Companion gained enters play with all tricks known that are possible.
