10 + Stars! Honey Lane/Xanthos Goldens is an EXCEPTIONAL place for boarding, day-care & grooming! We purchased our beautiful golden as a puppy in October 2009 from Xanthos Goldens. We have had dogs all of our lives & Finnley is by far the smartest, most well-behaved & easily trainable dog we have ever had. We credit Heidi & Steve for their responsible breeding practices. They place high standards on quality breeding, with the dog's temperament factor being given a very high priority. Finn's disposition is excellent; she is gentle & affectionate. She loves everyone she meets & interacts well with other dogs. We attribute her socializing guidance to Leigh; she has really brought her out of her shell. Finn attends their doggy-day-care once a week. She was a shy girl when she first started going, but now is absolutely "joyful" when she knows she is going to visit; she never even looks back when dropped off. When picked-up, she is happy & reluctant to leave. We would not consider going anywhere else for boarding, grooming, day care or purchasing a superior golden. We never worry at all when Finnley is in their care. Heidi, Steve & Leigh treat her like one of the family. Their combined years of experience are instrumental to the dog we have today. We have utilized Honey Lane for the past 20 years. We boarded our previous dogs many times in the past & have always been extremely satisfied. Our Finnley has ALWAYS been treated in a responsible manner, with care, love & dignity. They do a thorough check of your pets records, as safety for your pet is a top priority. She has always been returned to us clean, happy & in good health. We attribute all to the extraordinary care provided in our absence. The facility is clean, well-maintained, adequately staffed, reasonably priced, provides spacious kennels, outdoor exercise & the best customer service that anyone could ever ask for! We are always greeted warmly both at drop off & pick-up. Consider yourself lucky if your dog gets a stay here!

In response to the below review by an unhappy client, I would like to state that as a groomer myself, fleas sometimes happen in a grooming shop. When people have a dog or cat that has fleas on it...where do they take it? To the groomer. And though as a groomer you do your best to isolate and quickly remove fleas with a medicated bath, the inevitable can sometimes happen and a few will end up in the shop. It's unfortunate that this client had to experience a flea infestation particularly in her circumstance with a new baby, but I have to say that at least this groomer was nice enough and professional enough to alert them and I would assume other customers to her finding. I will also say that I'm sure that a reputable salon such as Embark would then give her dogs a flea bath along with whatever oatmeal treatments this customer requested for itching. Also, if I'm not mistaken, this particular groomer is located in a popular pet supply store and not only does she have her own clients coming in and obviously one came in with fleas for treatment, but she also has to deal with the general public bringing their dogs shopping with them throughout every day and it's very possible that her work area became infested with fleas just from that alone. I wouldn't knock any groomer for having fleas, it's just an unfortunate incident that this client had to bring them home with her, but whatever groomer she worked with hopefully explained to her how to get rid of them. Fortunately for her she had two small smooth coated dogs and a cat that needed treatment..and not 3 Newfoundlands that were flea ridden. Best of luck to everyone involved.
I have been bringing my dogs (we have three) to this place since shortly after they opened . I also have reffered my 2 adult daughters, my son and several other family members , friends and neighbors who now all bring their pets there to get there dogs groomed as well. In total I am in contact with the owners of about 17 different dogs that regularly visit this business. when I pulled up this site to get the phone # to call & make an apptointment I noticed the review written by the person with the pugs, I am not a dog expert but I know enough to know that if her pets got a flea infestation problem after being there a couple hours this place would have to be infested itself and every pet in there would be walking out with the same problem. In that case how come myself or anyone else I know that goes there has ever had a problem? In our family , one of us (between the 4 familys, which equals 8 dogs) is always in there getting one of the dogs done, we had our dogs in there the same month this person wrote that review and have never had any problems. We have only had evcellent services and dealt with very knowledgable people who seem to really know there stuff and really care about our pets. when I call today to make my next appointment I will inform the owner of this negative posting so if she is unaware of it she can defend her business and the great reputation everyone i know feels she has.
