Don't worry about practicing anthros. Work on getting to know animal and human anatomy as separate things. Once you start getting to know what makes each work you'll start understanding how to blend the two. When I was younger I drew a ton of kangaroos, dogs, mice, cats and other animals because my grandmother was teaching me how to draw and that's how she learned. I then got into drawing comic book characters. By the time I got into drawing TMNT, SWAT Kats and Gargoyles (as well as werewolves) I already had an idea of how different the heads would look, legs etc.
Really the biggest differences are head shape, whether the legs and feet are digitigrade or plantigrade and what a characters stance would be. This book https://www.amazon.com/Freaks-Fantastic-Fantasy-Creatures-Comics/dp/0823016625 is a pretty great guide. I highly suggest picking up a copy as well as some animal and human anatomy books.
In September of 2007, I found this book at a Borders in my local mall and was enchanted by the animal people I saw within. Wanting to find more of such beings, I researched anthropomorphic animals and discovered the furry fandom.
To this day, I still keep that book in my bookcase. It is a personal treasure to me.
