The shaving is a bad idea, that is only helpful to people who never pick up poop, or keep the yard clean, don't empty standing water, let their dog drink pond water, and leave feces dried and wet on the dogs bottom. I am reasonably sure you are not one of them. Giardia is not a big deal if your dog is healthy and you treat it. This is common in dogs coming from a shelter situation or dogs that are in close contact with each other, some parts of the country have seasons for it. The first few days of treatment I would do butt baths with shampoo, because you have two you do not want them reinfecting one another, after that time only if they are not clean, do clean up all the poop until treatment is over.
