I have a bridge on VLAN 6 so I call it br6 you can use xenbr0 is you like. Mine mostly looks something like this after removing the VLAN trunk complication:

# cat ifcfg-eth0
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=yes
BRIDGE=br6

# cat ifcfg-br6
DEVICE=br6
TYPE=Bridge
BOOTPROTO=static
ONBOOT=yes
IPADDR=10.10.6.1
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=10.10.6.0
BROADCAST=10.10.6.255

Now your primary IP of your dom0 lives on the br6 interface. Your domU's will be on the same VLAN and should see your DHCP server. Don't forget to enable IP forwarding.

# grep phys /etc/sysconfig/iptables
-A FORWARD -m physdev  --physdev-is-bridged -j ACCEPT

# grep forward /etc/sysctl.conf
# Controls IP packet forwarding
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1

p.s. use 'brctl show' to see your bridges.
