Maxing animal guard is only way, other passive specialities almost useless.

Animal Blessing is a waste of points. You can always have enough Leadership through gear.
Animal Link is a terrible passive. Gobup at 9 yields 70% HP of the original incarnation, and this skill's heal cuts that down even further to 1~20% of that.
Prespic Hair is not useful in PvE yet.. maybe in the future. In PvP, 1 point in Prespic Hair is good for Sram doubles.
Animal Guard is very nice. Max this.
Phoenix is optional. I like to have my summons revive when killed. It's a 1~20% chance, but they are fully healed, get another turn, and you don't have to replace the summon you lost. Goes great with Savage Anger (Earth).
Leveling order is your choice for your play style. Osamodas is a flexible class.

This topic was mentioned somewhere else, but never mind.
Those skills are really up to your game style.
If you are the brutal type, who sacrifices summons in any possible way just to achieve your victory, then phoenix would be best for you. [since death counter in your case spins like crazy]
If you are the impatient type, who runs to the enemy and fights almost every time in meele, then animal link + animal guard would be your choice. [since enemies will attack only you, not your pets]
If you are cautious type, who manages summons from afar, planning every move, then you would really want to put points in animal guard and prespic hair. [explanation below]
I am the third type, and I cannot even count how many times my prespic hair lev 20 killed monsters for me. At max level it gives 20% rebound of incoming attack upon your summon. I know, it's not that much.. or is it? Every time, when my well-placed-in-good-spot-summon recieves damage, it deals some damage at the enemy's turn.. and then great damage at it own's turn. On higher levels there are many fights in which players focus on dealing enormous damage, but when monster is weak - they just move to another one... couse noone wants to spend their "so good skill" on an almost dying monster. I also was frustrated, when my summon could deal its buffed damage to a monster and kill it, but instead - it choose some weakened one just to be sure. Now, those monsteres are gone, couse they kill themselves, thanks to prespic hair
Every osa has its own way, and support spells are really up to you - what we can give is just an example, how do we utilize our skills and what benefit and profit does it make.
Right now I have gobgob lev 8, gobup lev 9, possession lev 9, prespic hair lev 20, and now maxing animal guard [chance to have +25 MP with your summon does wonders
Thats a good answer.
Personally max GobGob and Gobup (for range, cost bonus and summon slots). since the AIs are really messed up, you also need Possession, and maxing it makes a 2 AP spell cost.
Animal guard can be tricky, once it triggers the Summon AI will change and he will chase the mob that hit you. That being said, he will chase that mob trough the whole map (the MP move bonus), and wont kill an almost dead one close to him, or do any aoe to maximize damage.
Prespic Hair + Phoenix Spirit + Animal Link could be a good combo if you are type 1 (mentioned by JaSkaR)
Goball Steak is useless without possession, the summon does not even acknowledged the steak on the field, but sounds good if you are going to summon 1 BIG Crobak chief (800hp) instead of 2 stalagawks for instance.
