I know what you mean about being scared they'd fall off. When I first brought Tessa into bed she stretched out so far she fell off, twice, in one night, while I was sleeping. One minute it's nice a quiet, the next BANG Tessa is on the floor wonder what the heck happened lol.
Granted she's a bigger breed than your cobber, so she didn't get hurt and maybe a little sturdier built, but since then she makes darn sure she's settled directly in the middle so she can't fall again! My mom said it's like teaching a toddler to sleep in a big bed, "they don't learn if they don't fall at least once"; Which left huge questions as to how many times she let me fall off?
If you do bring him into bed with you I suggest you just put some pillows on the sides (kinda of like bumper pads) to keep him from falling. Or if he's a real roller or stretcher, put some more pillows on the floor beside your bed (I used a fluffy duvet); so he has a soft place to fall
Now my only problem is she's become a bed hog
