No.  It is not too late to house train your dog.  It may be harder now.  When they are young it is easier.  It's hard but not impossible.  Try using treats/rewards and show it a certain place to do its business.

Isn't crate training keeping a dog in his crate and letting him out to go potty?  That is my understanding of it.  Dogs do not normally want to urinate and defecate in their sleep environment.  In any case, I'm sure most dogs can be house trained at just about any age as they are often adopted at all ages and most people want a trained dog.  Pet Smart and/or Petco offer potty training for pups and I'll bet that they at least know of training for older dogs too.  Good luck.

NO, it is never too late to potty train a dog. Here's How to Start. [learn more details at How to Potty Train a Service Dog]

1: Commit yourself to a house training schedule

Devise a schedule and stick with it. The schedule should include mealtimes, play sessions, training sessions, going outside and taking naps.

2: Supervise your dog

To keep an eye on your puppy the whole time, you should limit the access area in the house. If you put him behind some baby barriers or in a playpen, this would effectively control his area of activity. This should help you to notice the subtle signals of your puppy when he is ready to go outside.

3: Advanced training

After completing step 1 and step 2, it is time to train it with potty commands.

Nope. It never is. It may be a little harder, but it is definitely possible with a little effort.
