The study of the $\alpha$-particle energy distributions associated with ND and SD states in 151,152Dy has been carried out. The Dy isotopes were produced in the reaction 37Cl+123Sb at 191 MeV via the ($\alpha$5n) and ($\alpha$4n) channels, respectively. In 151Dy the $\alpha$-particle energy distributions associated to ND and SD are very different from each other, both at the low and high energy sides inducing a difference of 3 MeV in the $\alpha$-particle mean energy. In 152Dy the situation is different; the $\alpha$-particle spectral shapes are similar and a difference in the $\alpha$-particle mean energy of only 0.7 MeV is deduced. A description in terms of energy localization of entry states is given.
