Do finals have you feeling like you're the underdog? Well, we have a solution that should put you back at the top of the pack: Therapy dogs are back!

Studies show that petting a dog can lower your blood pressure, which can be a problem for students, especially during finals.

The canine and human volunteers are from the Therapy Dogs of Boulder County, who work with several organizations across Boulder to provide volunteer doggie love to those in need. The dogs themselves are very calm, obedient and, most of all, love to be petted. Please do not pet the humans.

Check the schedule below to make sure you have the chance to spend some time with these furry friends.
