Put the puppy on some manner of no pull harness right now, when you're walking him in exciting places and places you want him to have fun. Continue to SLOWLY up the distraction and excitement level of your loose leash training, as you go, and to work on it when he is tired.

Only in leash walking do we go 'okay, now do it in the most exciting place possible' and frankly that's not fair to trainer or dog. Work on it now, but also MANAGE IT so you can still have im out and having fun without developing the terrible habit of yanking your arm out of socket and choking while you train.

And expect, seriously, it to be a year or more before you're able to walk in a super exciting place without any management in place. It's a long haul, but hte more you can prevent pulling becoming a habit, the better off you will be and the shorter the time frame will be.
